dmesg output related to radeon

Description of problem:
VCE init error (-110) during boot.

Also While dual screening, resolution goes crazy when the discreet graphics card is called. All resolutions reset to mirrored. When trying to configure display back to primary and secondary. The screens change and then change back. Clicking "revert settings" rather than "keep changes" is the only way to apply changes. 

The display settings will then return to mirrored after opening the settings application, or running xrandr, or doing anything that calls the Radeon discreet graphics card. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time the discreet graphics card is called.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure dual screen
2.Run xrandr, or open the settings application.
3.Reconfigure dual screen. Must click revert settings for the settings to apply.

Actual results:
Screens flicker trying to establish a resolution for a minute or so after running xrandr.

Expected results:
xrandr would run smoothly and display information relating to the connected displays.

Additional info:

dmesg output attached.
