Kernel team -- Just a heads up, I've tested Ubuntu 10.04 x86 beta2 on
my system with ATI RV770 [Radeon HD 4870], it worked fine with 3d and
HDMI video but HDMI audio did not work. I last reviewed HDMI support
for these suckers and I was expecting this to be fixed last on the
kernel since the HDMI code would be added for the radeon KMS. After
installing 10.04 I then upgraded to 2.6.34-rc4 and my audio now works
over HDMI.

Brynce has suggested if I can look for the patches and see if you guys
might consider merging for an SRU onto the Lucid kernel. If you guys
are interested I might be up for reviewing this, otherwise I won't
even bother as I'm personally happy running 2.6.34.
