I don't know if it's the same problem or not, but I had exactly the
same issue with my Radeon when using kernel modesetting. Disabling KMS
gave me a back a stable image[1].


[1] This is why I get very annoyed about the proposals to drop support
for anything except KMS. I agree that architecturally it's the right
design and it's great when it works, but it's simply not ready yet.
