Xorg intialization log with crash

I have an HP 850 Elitebook laptop with Intel GPU and secondary discrete AMD HD
8730M GPU.

With the following contents (that worked for a long time) of

ection "Device"
        Identifier "intel"
        Driver     "intel"
        Option     "DRI"          "3"
        Option     "VSync"        "False"
        BusID      "PCI:0:2:0"
        Screen     0

Section "Device"
        Identifier "radeon"
        Driver     "radeon"
        Option     "VSync"           "False"
        Option     "DRI"             "3"
        BusID      "PCI:3:0:0"
        Screen     1

my Xorg server crashes during intialization stage with the following backtrace:

[    42.673] (EE) Backtrace:

It seems that radeon_drv dislikes config with depth=24 bpp and fb=32 bpp. If I
add the following section to my 20-gpu.conf:

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "def_screen"
    Device         "intel"
    GPUDevice      "radeon"
    DefaultDepth   24
    DefaultFbBpp   24

forcing fpbbb=24, then crash disappears (Xorg seems to initialize fine) but the
screen is completely blank. If at the same time I change driver to
"modesetting" then Xorg crashes again.

This behaviour seems to be introduced with kernel 4.8 and still remains in 4.9.
