When running without compositor, I get the screen distortion like in the
screenshot on my Carrizo. This can be triggered either by disabling the
checkbox "Enable compositor on startup" in the kwin config or by enabling
"Suspend compositor for full screen windows", start an application in
fullscreen like mpv and switch to another virtual desktop. The distortions go
away after reenabling the compositor, but I have heavy flickering around the
window that has the focus. Switching focus or resizing the window helps
temporarily but reappears with every newly opened window. At least logout and
re-login into X is needed.

Hardware is a "CARRIZO" (ChipID = 0x9874)

software components are:

xserver 1.18.4
llvm git (at commit 5e00cf65e23656cbeba353efb5a7d85ba8e25f4a)
