I just booted on an rx5670 and it works fine.

However, I think I may have an idea ... what do you get in the line
that reports the SAL version?  I wonder if you have prototype firmware
that's reporting a bogus version or revision?  I just debugged a problem
on a prototype that was using SAl 3.2 calls to access PCI config space,
so it looked like there were no PCI devices available.

conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince 
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep 
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
