AMD release r600/r700 code

AMD today pushed the initial code to support acceleration on the r600/r700 range of GPUs.

This consists of r6xx-r7xx-support branches in the drm, radeonhd and a new r600_demo repo.

This code is really only for developers at this point but its great to see AMD finally get things lined up to allow this code to be released.

I've only been barely involved in the r600 code so far, I wrote the original drm over a few days and handed it over to AMD to continue on with, as I wanted to concentrate on the kms work. Hopefully I can get some time to look at it over the next while (yeah right, new baby still not here).
