    Darkbasic, I'm really sorry to see that you've been having continuing issues with your SI... I've been running my 7850 near continuously for months without any major issues... I do remember that Kernel 3.15 was junk for me, and 3.16 was somewhat better. 3.17 seemed ok again for me, but since I usually run the latest RC kernel, I'm off in 3.18 land already.

    I usually run the latest LLVM/Clang from SVN, as well as the latest Mesa from git. Any other supporting software is from the xorg-edgers Ubuntu PPA (so basically git builds of the ATI xorg driver, and sometimes X updates).

    That being said, I'm not an AMD employee, and I usually stay away from the kernel as much as I can other than upgrading continuously so that I can find any regressions that affect me as soon as possible.

    CPU: Phenom II x6 1055T
    GPU: XFX (Ghost) Radeon 7850 1GB

    They probably meant to reply to the Gngr open-sourcing article.

    Not merged yet - unfortunately.

    Guessing it is this patch for mesa
    http://lists.freedesktop.org/archive...er/054416.html

    Plus something in the kernel, might be that is already part of some recent kernel... btw i take this with huge grain of salt - i don't have intel hardware to test that claim
