Try adding

    Option "ColorTiling" "off"

to the "Device" section of your xorg.conf.

If your distro has an /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d directory, you can add a
file like this (/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-radeon.conf):

    Section "Device"
        Identifier "Device0"
        Driver     "radeon"
        Option     "ColorTiling" "off"
