I just tried the latest kernel from xen/stable-2.6.32.x branch,
which now includes the kms.fixes-0.5, on my radeon/supermicro testbox.

.. And KMS modesetting works properly now in Xen dom0! 
My onboard ATI Radeon is the following:

# lspci -v | grep VGA
11:04.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc ES1000 (rev 02) 
(prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

It seems also X starts OK, and I can use the Gnome desktop. 
I could even run multiple OpenGL 3D applications! (ok, glxgears :)

Thanks, great work!
