    Running a Radeon 6670 1GB GDDR5 card (Turks) and on boot with radeon.dpm=1 I get vertical blue lines on all three heads. Using the latest fedora rawhide kernel (3.11rc1) on 19 with firmwares downloaded from the main firmware site unpacked into /usr/lib/firmware/radeon/ and rebuilding my initrd. Mother board is a MSI 990-FXA and processor is a Pheonom II X6 1090T

      3.11RC1 does not have these fixes, you need either the drm-fixes-3.11 branch from Alex Deucher or you have to wait for RC2

        With the newest drm-fixes-3.11 as of today, UVD still does not work on my Radeon HD 6870 and results in a soft-GPU lockup during boot. This is WITH and WITHOUT dpm enabled.

        Code:
        d2kx@d2kx-desktop:~$ dmesg | grep UVD
        [    3.820948] [drm:r600_uvd_init] *ERROR* UVD not responding, trying to reset the VCPU!!!
        [    4.832160] [drm:r600_uvd_init] *ERROR* UVD not responding, trying to reset the VCPU!!!
        [    5.843376] [drm:r600_uvd_init] *ERROR* UVD not responding, trying to reset the VCPU!!!
        [    6.854589] [drm:r600_uvd_init] *ERROR* UVD not responding, trying to reset the VCPU!!!
        [    7.865805] [drm:r600_uvd_init] *ERROR* UVD not responding, trying to reset the VCPU!!!
        [    8.877008] [drm:r600_uvd_init] *ERROR* UVD not responding, trying to reset the VCPU!!!
        [    9.888222] [drm:r600_uvd_init] *ERROR* UVD not responding, trying to reset the VCPU!!!
        [   10.899468] [drm:r600_uvd_init] *ERROR* UVD not responding, trying to reset the VCPU!!!
        [   11.910683] [drm:r600_uvd_init] *ERROR* UVD not responding, trying to reset the VCPU!!!
        [   12.921898] [drm:r600_uvd_init] *ERROR* UVD not responding, trying to reset the VCPU!!!
        [   12.941771] [drm:r600_uvd_init] *ERROR* UVD not responding, giving up!!!
        [   12.941823] [drm:evergreen_startup] *ERROR* radeon: error initializing UVD (-1).
        HOWEVER, the good news is dpm is fully fixed on my HD 6870 and now it properly clocks in 3D games and 3D performance is literally amazing... Left 4 Dead 2 with all settings maxed plays great and is on par with Catalyst and that is without the R600 shader optimizations forthcoming in Mesa...

          Make sure you have the latest rlc and the uvd ucode available to your kernel. If you are building the ucode and driver into the kernel, make sure you run 'make clean' after updating the ucode since the kernel doesn't track whether ucode files change or not. e.g.,
          https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=66519
