--- Comment #7 from james.coulthard at verizon.net ---
That fixed it.
I downloaded the 7.9 *.deb.

I executed:
> sudo dpkg -i xserver-xorg-video-radeon-hwe-16.04_7.9.0-0ubuntu1_16.04.1_amd64.deb

> sudo apt-get -f install

> sudo apt-mark hold xserver-xorg-video-radeon-hwe-16.04

This downgraded the radeon driver package, fixed dependencies, and held the
driver pkg from further updates.

Rebooted and issue is resolved.  No other files were touched.  It's definitely
something in the 7.10 changes.

I will upload a new Xorg.0.log of the 7.9 behavior.
