    The fbdev layer does not have a concept of multiple displays per adapter so it's not really possible which out improving the interface or hacking up the driver to expose muliple fbdev devices. I...

    dpm is enabled by default. You need to explicitly set it on to enable additional debug output to avoid spamming your logs. E.g., radeon.dpm=1

    Please file a bug (https://bugs.freedesktop.org) and attach your xorg log and dmesg output.
  4. The content of the data and command tables in the...

    The content of the data and command tables in the vbios that are used by the driver are completely documented in the open source driver. The content of those tables however is very board specific...

    You can ignore the "Invalid ROM contents" message. It was due to a change in the rom handling code in the pci subsystem. It's harmless.
  6. It wouldn't really help that much. Updating...

    It wouldn't really help that much. Updating radeon is getting a bit unweildly. I think it might be the largest driver in the kernel. It accomodates ~15 years of asics. A lot has changed in those...
  7. This doesn't make any sense. If we didn't care...

    This doesn't make any sense. If we didn't care about open source, we'd just have a single closed source driver and not support open source at all.
  8. Hybrid graphics will work just like it does...

    Hybrid graphics will work just like it does today. There are already hybrid graphics that use different drivers for each chip (E.g., Intel+AMD laptops).
  9. Can't really do that. Multiple drivers for the...

    Can't really do that. Multiple drivers for the same hardware are not really allowed in the kernel. If we supported those asics with radeon, we'd have to support those asics with radeon forever. ...
  10. Everyone seems to keep asking the same question,...

    Everyone seems to keep asking the same question, but ignoring my response. Let's try this again: Having a shared components benefits both drivers since there will be more developers working on those...
  11. It's not clear to me what you are asking. If...

    It's not clear to me what you are asking. If there are bug fixes applicable to both drivers, we will apply the fix to both.
  12. I don't see why this is any more of an advantage...

    I don't see why this is any more of an advantage to the closed source driver than it is to the open source driver. Both driver stacks will now have more developers working on the shared components. ...
  13. More AMD developers working on the shared kernel...

    More AMD developers working on the shared kernel driver.

    Tonga (R9 285) is supported in the new amdgpu driver, not radeon.
  15. It will be great when the open source drivers...

    It will be great when the open source drivers support OpenGL 4.x, but it won't happen overnight. We have customers that need that functionality now and we have a driver tha supports it now, so it...
  16. The main reason for the closed user mode drivers...

    The main reason for the closed user mode drivers is because they support features today (OpenGL 4.x, OpenCL 2.x, etc.) which are not available today in the open source stack. Moreover, I'm not...
  17. Each hw block supports different video formats. ...

    Each hw block supports different video formats. In most cases the blocks should be able to be power gated so they won't really use much additional power when not in use, so really the only downside...
  18. What makes you think that is the case? New chips...

    What makes you think that is the case? New chips will be supported with a new driver, older chips will continue to be supported with existing drivers just like before.
  19. From an open source perspective, nothing really...

    From an open source perspective, nothing really changes. There's just a different kernel driver loaded. The existing open source usermode drivers (3D, compute, video) will be updated to work with...

    Older hardware will continue to be supported by the open source radeon and catalyst Linux drivers.
