Either radeon or radeonhd should be fine.  Feature-wise, they are at the same 
level.  No other changes are required.

Very recently DRM support was added for those cards, giving them much faster 
2D acceleration via EXA (without DRM support, only XAA is supported) and Xv 
support as well.  Unfortunately, this is limited to linux at the moment, but I 
*believe* Robert Noland has begun investigating how to port those changes
