I'm using X11 and I have the same 20-radeon.conf that you do:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Radeon"
Driver "radeon"
Option "AccelMethod" "glamor"
Option "DRI" "3"
Option "TearFree" "on"
EndSection

@gnunn just out of curiosity, are you using for X drivers? Here are the contents of my /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-radeon.conf
Section "Device"
Identifier "Radeon"
Driver "radeon"
Option "AccelMethod" "glamor"
Option "DRI" "3"
Option "TearFree" "on"
EndSection

Also when's the last time you booted into OSX and installed any firmware updates? I just updated the package to 4.8.1 -- any better luck using that version?

It's the 11,5 model (Macbook Pro 15") with the AMD 370x graphics adapter.

I'm running this kernel on a MacBook pro 15", MacBook Air 11" and an Intel NUC (to leverage the new speed-stepping code) all without any lock-ups. What model MacBook Pro are you running?

gnunn commented on 2016-10-10 20:12

I just upgraded to 4.8-2 and I'm having issues with my macbook pro 15 (with AMD 370x) locking up periodically (twice in the last hour) and requiring a hard reboot. Anyone else having a similar issue?

For any users of the brcmsmac or brcmfmac modules, check out my latest package backports-patched-bcma package (type i for interactive mode, select defconfig and then select brcmsmac or brcmfmac).

@jjanzic Yep, whenever I come back from suspend my Wifi adapter won't work. I can still see any active wireless networks, but the driver crashes every time I try to connect to one. A restart always solves it, though. I haven't tried m3thodic's suspend fix involving the rc-local package, I wonder if that has anything to do with it?

Does anyone else have wifi issues with the latest version of this package?
