Wonderfull news... I got this back today from ATI.  Looks like someone 
with some clout there finally gets it.

So I'm about to start porting some biosless init code I received over to 
Linux.  Then work it into linux bios.

I take back everything I said bad about ATI.  *grin*

Tell all your OEM buddies that ATI Mobility M1 video chips are about to 
become LinuxBIOS friendly in the near future.

Sorry for the lengthy delay.  There is a lot of detail here.  Basically, 
you can develop code with our documentation, and then release it under 
GPL - no issues there.

If you want to produce a biosless chip init procedure, you can use the
documentation I pointed you to.  If you have any questions, feel free to
email me about those documents.
