      Looks like the bug got nailed:

        Awesome! Thank you. I'm surprised (and a bit shocked) by the fact that the bug didn't get reported until as late as early august, since Phoronix found out (and wrote) about the regression by the first 4.7.0-r1 release. A mean, almost all of the developers read Phoronix, like Bridgman, Ila Mirkin, Marek, etc etc etc.

          I did the bug report, but it was a guy named Kai that did the heavy lifting by doing the bisecting. So you me and all those affected by the bug should say a thanks to him.

          Also, this is a example for people that got hit by a bug, to file a detailed bug report in the Bugzilla at freedesktop.org, instead of simple stay put and hopping the thing to go away.

            I actually never got hit by it, since I'm still using Radeon on account of seeing the regression on Phoronix.

            I have reported numerous bugs on Freedesktop.org before though. I agree with your sentiment.
