           Product: xorg
           Version: git
          Hardware: Other
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: critical
          Priority: medium

errors in dmesg (1366x768 (LVDS) and 1920x1080 (VGA) monitors) on linux

GPU: Mobility Radeon HD 5470 512MB (I don't have any integrated GPU).
Linux kernel 4.4.0-36-lowlatency x86_64. Also the same happens on 4.8.0.
Ubuntu 16.04 with Padoka PPA.

If "AccelMethod" is "Glamor" and "TearFree" is "Off", then all is ok.
If "AccelMethod" is "Glamor" and "TearFree" is "On", then all is ok.
If "AccelMethod" is "EXA"    and "TearFree" is "Off", then all is ok.
If "AccelMethod" is "EXA"    and "TearFree" is "On", then every ~0.1-~3.0
seconds (I guess some app is rerendering something...) my display shows one of
2-3 almost random visual messes (I guess it's random parts of random images
from VRAM... And at one time 100% of my screen was RGB noise.).
The mouse cursor and its animation always looks ok unless I set Option
"SWcursor" "on".

Option "DRI" "3" doesn't fix the bug.
Option "EXAPixmaps" "off" doesn't fix the bug.

No errors in Xorg.log.

(I selected bug severity=critical because I think a tear-free experience is a
must-have in 2016.)
