tried radeon.disp_priority=2 with stock kernel;
tried patch from comment 8 with and without radeon.disp_priority=2;
tried patch from comment 8 with patch from comment 20, with and without

All failed to make any improvement the flashing is now every few seconds .With
the patch combination suggested in comment 3 of this thread the flashing went
out to 1-5 minutes between events.
