So I talked to one of the Linux driver developers at ATI, and he was really cool. He's extremely interested in making the ATI drivers not suck on Linux, which is great for everyone of course. Apparently ATI is devoting more funding to this now than they have in the past so I think eventually they'll get there. It's just unfortunate that right now the drivers still suck all kinds of ass. But he gave me a list of things that he wants us to add to NeoEngine in order to make it a useful tool for debugging the drivers. He asked for binaries, but I'm on AMD64 so I couldn't give him x86 binaries (I'm using gcc 3.4.0, and multilib is currently not available there).
