            Bug ID: 110808
           Summary: display stops updating after VT switch
           Product: xorg
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: x86-64 (AMD64)
                OS: Linux (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Driver/AMDgpu

xserver log file

After starting Xorg with the AMDGPU driver, I switch to a different VT.
When I switch back to X, the display has frozen.  Only the mouse cursor
moves.  To reproduce:

1) From a linux console with no display manager or X session running:
    $ startx /usr/bin/xterm
2) Switch to a different VT and back.
3) Nothing appears in the xterm when typing.
4) Switch to a different VT and back, the old typing appears.

The screen isn't updating correctly but the client & server are
functioning.  I can run commands in the terminal, but can't see any
output without a VT switch.  Exiting the xterm immediately ends the X
session cleanly.

The same issue is triggered by a suspend/resume cycle.

This is using amdgpu 19.0.1 from Debian sid.  Same issue with the version in
buster (18.1.99+git20190207-1)
