A new pull request was sent in today that fixes some Radeon and AMDGPU DRM driver issues within the Linux 4.6 kernel.

This AMDGPU/Radeon update fixes video RAM information fetching for Fury/Fiji, has more vblank fixes in both drivers, fixes some suspend and resume issues pertaining to UVD video decoding, and most excitingly there are a number of PowerPlay fixes. Mainly due to the many PowerPlay fixes, I look forward to trying out this latest Linux 4.6 Git code shortly.

More details on these changes can be found via this dri-devel message by AMD's Alex Deucher.
