Although Squeeze is 2.6.32 based it is carrying a backport of the 2.6.33
(I think) DRM code. I think this means it has KMS although I'm not even
80% sure on that...

Hmm, I think that was among the stuff which was deliberately excluded
from the Squeeze kernel by the Debian maintainer.
(See this thread:
http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/pkg-xen-devel/2010-August/002918.html )

I have put a version of the 2.6.32-21 package which reinstates those
changes at <http://www.hellion.org.uk/debian/test/> which it would be
useful to test. (actually the upload is ongoing, I'm betting on the
timezones allowing it to complete before you see this ;-))

The packages are otherwise identical to the 2.6.32-21 package currently
in Sid.
