Then the lockup appears to be with the the clock or pcie code for you chip.

What your patch did is to make all of the power management code conditional on
the ClockGating option.  Effectively disabling power management all together.

     if (info->pm.clock_gating_enabled)
-       RADEONSetClockGating(pScrn, FALSE);
+      //       RADEONSetClockGating(pScrn, FALSE);
     if (info->pm.force_low_power_enabled || info->pm.dynamic_mode_enabled)
        RADEONSetStaticPowerMode(pScrn, POWER_DEFAULT);

the top "if" statement now applies to both the following "if" statement.  the
logic is now:
if (info->pm.clock_gating_enabled)
    if (info->pm.force_low_power_enabled || info->pm.dynamic_mode_enabled)
        RADEONSetStaticPowerMode(pScrn, POWER_DEFAULT);
