log file showing segmentation fault

Note: The problem only occurs if an external monitor is attached!

Kernel initialization is ok. Seeing boot msgs on all ext. monitors driven by

Subsequent Greeter load failures are accompanied by these messages:

Aug  1 13:24:59 mnmaster kernel: [   40.455942]
[drm:amdgpu_atombios_dp_link_train [amdgpu]] *ERROR* channel eq failed: 5 tries
Aug  1 13:24:59 mnmaster kernel: [   40.455954]
[drm:amdgpu_atombios_dp_link_train [amdgpu]] *ERROR* channel eq failed

Greeter is then stable after a few failures and login is possible.
Xorg.0.log shows segmentation fault:

I will add the current Xorg.0.log and also an older Xorg.0.log from April that
used the 4.8.0-36 kernel. Please compare these logs to see that the root cause
seems to be that amdgpu cannot allocate a frame buffer.

I should also mention that kern.log is flooded with these messages (but that
may not be related to the error):
Aug  1 14:44:19 mnmaster kernel: [ 2759.820005] [drm:drm_mode_addfb2 [drm]]
Aug  1 14:44:19 mnmaster kernel: [ 2759.847678] [drm:drm_mode_addfb2 [drm]]
