Xorg log for failed boot on Linux 4.10.0 from SSD

I'm experiencing an issue with kernels greater than version 4.10.0 on a 2015
MacBook Pro 11,5 laptop running Ubuntu Gnome 16.04. The newest kernel I've
found so far is 4.9.8, however it appears there are 29 releases between this
and 4.10.0. 

I'm using this as a reference point because of the ability to boot Ubuntu Gnome
17.04 from the LiveUSB key which boots the 4.10.0-19 kernel.

Xorg is stopping with a fatal error on startup, interestingly, this only
happens when booting from the internal SSD. If booting from a LiveUSB key, the
laptop starts up successfully, but there are no Xorg logs available in

I have reached a point now where I'm pretty certain there is either something
wrong with my Xorg configuration (likely), radeon driver or something related
to how Xorg is detecting my displays.
