Please note that I didn't test if these boards worked actually !
I'm only making suggestions and these reasonings may be wrong !

Yes.  I understood that.

1) I've reworked my list.

I'd still like to know where your original list came from.

2) Now, looking at radeon_probe.c, we can note that some boards in your
have chips which are not in the list of the radeon(4x) man page. So either
the man page should be updated or this is a mistake ?

Dunno.  Not surprising though, given this was a merge from X.Org.

RC410 :
- 0x1002  0x5a61  "ATI|RC410 [Radeon Xpress 200]"
- 0x1002  0x5a62  "ATI|RC410 [Radeon Xpress 200M]"

ES1000 :
- 0x1002  0x515e  "ATI|ES1000"
- 0x1002  0x5969  "ATI|ES1000"
According to http://ati.amd.com/products/server/es1000/index.html, ES1000
was designed
for servers and has no 3D acceleration (so Option "nodri").

I agree the driver should know that.

RS480 :
- 0x1002  0x5954  "ATI|RS480 [Radeon Xpress 200G Series]"
- 0x1002  0x5955  "ATI|Radeon XPRESS 200M 5955 (PCIE)"

RS482 :
- 0x1002  0x5974  "ATI|RS482 [Radeon Xpress 200]"
- 0x1002  0x5975  "ATI|RS485 [Radeon Xpress 1100 IGP]"
Note : RS485 is a typo in pci.ids - I told that to the guys on

I don't think such lists can ever be 100% reliable.

3) Continuing on that way, these chipsets are of the same type as those in
2) and
could perhaps be added too :

*0x1002     0x5854      "ATI Radeon Xpress Series (RS480)"
*0x1002     0x5874      "ATI Radeon Xpress Series (RS482)"
*0x1002     0x5a63      "ATI Radeon Xpress Series (RC410)"
Moreover, the following two boards are also ES1000, but are aren't in the
supported list,
they could perhaps be added if the ES1000 chip is kept in the list :
- 0x1002  0x515f  "ATI|ES1000"
- 0x103c  0x31fb  "HP|DL365 ATI ES1000 VGA controller"

Note : these chips are not in pci.ids now.
