    Yes it supports Opengl.

    X.Org Wiki - RadeonFeature

    This page is only for free Radeon drivers using KMS.
    radeon (xf86-video-ati) for 2D; radeon, r200 Mesa and r300, r600, radeonsi Gallium drivers only.
    THIS PAGE IS NOT FOR FGLRX/CATALYST DRIVERS PROVIDED BY AMD/ATI.
    Where to get the drivers

    Xorg radeon DDX (xf86-video-ati)
    Mesa 3D driver (radeon, r200, r300c/g, r600c/g)
    KMS DRM (Linux Kernel)

    git.kernel.org - linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/summary

    So it is included n the kernel as far as I can tell.
