            Bug ID: 91648
           Summary: Radeon HD 8970M not working

Log of the failed boot

System Information

Fedora 22
AMD A10-5750M CPU
AMD Radeon HD 8650G & 8970M

Short Summary of the past problems:
Fedora 21 clean install with Kernel 3.17, the system wont boot. Only after a
reboot into the recovery mode. 
With Kernel 3.18, System will boot, but the HD 8970M wont be recognized. All
Kernels after 3.18.8, the System will finish the boot sequence, the mouse will
show up and the look screen and then the systems freezes and reboots. 

Now the actual Bug:
A few days ago I tried Kernel 4.2 RC4, Xorg 1.17, Mesa (fedora rawhide) out.
Result: The System tries to load the Hainan Code for the HD 8970M, but given
the PCI nummber, its a Pitcairn card. 
Today I updated to Kernel 4.2 RC6, Xorg 1.18 and Mesa 11 (fedora rawhide). Now
the Pitcairn Code gets loaded, but the System will still crash and reboot.

How to reproduce: 
1. Install Fedora 21/22 or use an Live CD
2. Boot

About the Xorg.log

Well I had it, but it got overriden by the catalyst driver (yeah D:). The log
had the same information in it as the boot log (ring test failed, resume
failed). But if you really need the log file, I will get it. 

I hope I provided enough information. If not, just tell me what oter logs etc I
need to post and I will get them. I really want to solve this problem
