--- Comment #6 from Samuel Anderson <LordSamanon@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> ---
It never worked for me, but I haven't been on openSUSE for long. To get a
ballpark range of where it might have regressed, I'm installing old kernels
from the home:tiwai repo. Hopefully I can get an idea of when approximately it
stopped working and then be a bit more scientific with something like a git
bisect, though I've never done that before. Though it may never come to that,
depending on if you have a better idea on what to do.

I will say that based on the testing I've done so far, that it never worked as
far back as the 4.3 kernel at least for large programs like Portal. However, I
haven't been able to crash the card using glxgears on the older kernels, and
large programs crash with a completely different error message and allow the
card to recover without a reboot (I can start glxgears after a crash on older
kernels, but not on newer ones). So it certainly seems like some sort of
regression, even if it never worked completely.

I'll work on trying to find out which kernel version exactly this changes with.

Also, it's quite possible that this is entirely upstream, as I had similar
crashes on Fedora, though I lost the logs so it may be a different issue.
