You don't mention which kernel you are using.
uname -a

If it is am AMD graphics card, you might have more luck joining the amd-gfx
mailing list and then asking there.

amd-gfx at lists.freedesktop.org

They also have an IRC channel, so worth asking on IRC.
Also, try raising a bug.

If you can build your own kernel, try building from the amd-gfx tree, it
will have the latest graphics drivers in it and thus most likely to work
with your GPU.
