I was a bit concerned with the limits when the split occurs, but that seems to work fine on r200 (though probably not optimal since it's really a buffer size limit not a fixed vertex count limit for the driver currently). Not sure though what happens with large index counts (chances are there will be a split anyway in that case because of too large arrays), there may be hidden bugs there with the radeon/r200 drivers.
I've done some quick measurements, ut2k3 got up from ~40fps to ~75fps (which is very nice, this probably brings it roughly back to where it once was in mesa 5 days if not better, even sw tnl got a big increase from 27fps to 49fps!), ipers (with lod 1) has about a 20% performance drop whereas trispd (with size 5) gets down from roughly 25M tris/s to 16M tris/s (obviously due to the removal of the vtxfmt code in the driver). I'd say that's quite good overall. The only thing I noticed looking different was the water reflection in the antalus map in ut2k3/ut2k4, though it could be due to other changes in the code rather than vbo (it uses some weirdo texgen and at least in ut2k3 has never looked right neither with sw tnl nor hw tnl, and was never correct with fglrx neither).
