Description Jure Repinc 2011-02-17 00:52:25 UTC
After updating the kernel to 2.6.38-rc5 screen gets corrupted when video mode switches for KMS. This is on laptop eMachines E640G with integrated ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470. It was working just fine with -rc4. I have bisected the commits and this one was pointed out as the culprit:

    drm/radeon/kms: hopefully fix pll issues for real (v3)
    The problematic boards have a recommended reference divider
    to be used when spread spectrum is enabled on the laptop panel.
    Enable the use of the recommended reference divider along with
    the new pll algo.
    v2: testing options
    v3: When using the fixed reference divider with LVDS, prefer
    min m to max p and use fractional feedback dividers.

Can you attach your xorg log and a copy of your vbios?

(as root)
(use lspci to get the bus id)
cd /sys/bus/pci/devices/<pci bus id>
echo 1 > rom
cat rom > /tmp/vbios.rom
echo 0 > rom

If the patch in comment 8 doesn't work, try this one.  But test the one in comment 8 first.
