drm-next + 3.12.2 = whitescreen and no turning off during shutdown
anyone experiences the same issue:
3.12.2 / 3.12 + drm-next + radeon.dpm=1
3.13-rc* + radeon.dpm=1
leads to NOT turning off - of the screen and the computer stays on, after keyboard (usb) and/or harddrives have been turned off
radeon HD 5850
stupid no-edit timeout
the same also happens during restart - the screen turns white, keyboard turns off (no magic sysrq key)
at least rebooting seems to work = no white screen of death with pure 3.12.2 (drm-next reverted)
so it's a regression introduced with 3.13-rc* kernels
will see if shutting down & other stuff works ...
I now have 3.13 rc2 and never encountered this kind fo bug. r600 driver, A8-5500 with Radeon 7650D, drm, mesa, kernel, glamor, libclc, llvm from git (64 bit Debian Testing).
so it seems it got fixed or things changed in my system that fixed it
