[opensuse-factory] amdgpu fighting radeon with .20170206 (and earlier?)
Hi
With respect to this thread;
<https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-factory/2017-02/msg00205.html>

And a few forum threads;
<https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/522843-SUSE-tumbleweed-only-GUI-starts-with-nomodeset>
<https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/522644-Will-not-boot-in-Kernel-4-9-5-1-ACPI-Error-flashing-screen-unresponsive?p=2810836#post2810836>

From memory back (August?) there was discussion about making a change
to detect an amdgpu ready card, I'm guessing this detection is starting
to filter though in kernel 4.9.7.

On my AMD setup (Mullins R5), all I need to do is blacklist radeon (no
xorg.conf required now) for things to work.

If I remove the blacklist, radeon and amdgpu start fighting and no
GUI just console flashing until X dies and then it's quiet.
