please help to pin down following problem:

I noticed that there are some glitches in graphics after upgrade:

It is caused by those packages:
[2018-06-12 20:18] [ALPM] upgraded xf86-video-ati (1:18.0.1-1 -> 1:18.0.1-2)
[2018-06-12 20:18] [ALPM] upgraded xorg-server (1.19.6+13+gd0d1a694f-2 ->
[2018-06-12 20:18] [ALPM] upgraded xorg-server-xvfb (1.19.6+13+gd0d1a694f-2 ->

If you downgrade packages to mentioned versions, problem goes away.

Also my dmesg is full of messages like:

[ 400.831919] VM fault (0x04, vmid 2) at page 1084047, write from 'CB0'
(0x43423000) (0)

I noticed screen full of those messages while switching screens with alt + ctrl
+ F1-F7.

I'm running AMD APU on a PC: AMD A8-7600 Radeon R7, 10 Compute Cores 4C+6G.
