--- Comment #8 from Ralf-Peter Rohbeck <RalfPeter.Rohbeck at quantum.com> ---
OK one crash and one hang with fglrx 13.1 today gave me a lot of incentive to
work some more on this.
I got it to work! It seems that the root cause was that the old X server didn't
pick up the config files from /opt/xorg/share/X11/xorg.conf.d correctly. Once I
cat'd them all to /etc/X11/xorg.conf and got rid of the -configdir argument for
X things became much better. Thanks all! You got me on the right track.

The whole thing hung hard immediately with Dave Airlie's 3.8rc4 drm-next kernel
but with 3.7 it works mostly.

DRM/KMS with 2560x1440 monitors on DP->DVI adapters doesn't work correctly. The
monitors were detected with the wrong resolution (1024x768) even after I
hardwired them on the kernel command line with video=DP-1:2560x1440-24 at 60e
video=DP-2:2560x1440-24 at 60e.

The only thing that worked was to hardwire the modeline in xorg.conf but xrandr
-q still thinks they can do other modes than 2560x1440 (they don't):

DisplayPort-0 connected 1440x2560+3360+0 right (normal left inverted right x
axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
   2560x1440      60.0*+
   1024x768       60.0  
   800x600        60.3     56.2  
   848x480        60.0  
   640x480        59.9  

However the monitor detection/mode switching code in the Atom BIOS is broken in
general for DP outputs. Not even the BIOS switches modes correctly when these
monitors are connected. I had a long and fruitless exchange with AMD tech
support about this. Now the monitors are still not detected reliably but
switching to a text console and back gets them all up after a couple of tries.

KDE decorations don't look quite right (default theme, XRender or OpenGL.) I'll
attach a screenshot.

Every now and then the display freezes for a moment. During that time the
migration process is very busy, often with over 200% CPU and several threads.
This can be triggered by switching KDE desktop effects on/off (Shift-Alt-F12.)
Doing that also leaves some garbage on the screen.

Other than that, I have messed around for a while and haven't seen a crash yet.
So far so good :)
