Default openbsd 5.1 radeon dri/drm


my laptop has a radeon mobility 4200 gpu, which is (afaik) supported by the open source drivers. in openbsd 5.0 it worked flawlessly on first boot (tested with glxgears and etracer).

i installed openbsd 5.1 the other day, and while everything works fine, xorg seems to run without any acceleration whatsoever. i tried to stop xdm and do an Xorg -configure, but that failed. i noticed that it didn't ask whether to install non-free firmware on first boot (during install). i did it manually (with fw_update -v), but apparently the video firmware was up to date.

i'm really stumped and suspect that i'm missing something painfully obvious here. could someone point me in the right direction?
