Description Jean Delvare 2016-03-07 14:29:01 UTC
Since updating to kernel v4.4.4 (from v4.4.3), I get vertical jitter on my display with almost every boot. The picture moves up and down with black horizontal stripes. This makes the system pretty much unusable.

I bisected it to the following commit:


drm/radeon/pm: adjust display configuration after powerstate

I am now running v4.4.4 with this commit reverted and so far so good. My hardware:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Turks XT [Radeon HD 6670/7670] [1002:6758] (Sapphire HD 6670)
Comment 1 Jean Delvare 2016-03-08 08:46:29 UTC
Kernel v4.5-rc7 is affected too.
Comment 2 Alex Deucher 2016-03-08 16:33:20 UTC
I'll just revert it for now.  Sorry for the breakage.
Comment 3 Jean Delvare 2016-03-09 09:42:00 UTC
OK, thanks Alex.
