Have you been able to test it in the meantime? It doesn't seem very likely
it'll help, but...

Can others affected by the problem confirm this?

Can you attach the dmesg output from with and without the working vramlimit?

Sounds like that was just intermittent corruption of the hardware cursor memory
buffer then, e.g. due to a 3D driver bug causing it to be accidentally
overridden. Probably not the same problem this report is about.

See e.g. rs690_mc_init() in drivers/gpu/drm/radeon/rs690.c .
