Sure, it wasn't supported by spring's versions of software yet.

If you want you can try to download beta and install from it:

It has more fresh drivers and IIRC R9200 was reported as working.

If it's not an option (though this beta seems rather working than
not to me), then you'd better describe more precisely what was
the problem with XF86 4.3 upgrade.

Sorry for slowish answer -- testing the beta on different
hardware myself to be at least a bit sure what to say :-)
