xorg log file
Description of problem: Just upgraded to kernel 4.9.3-200. I no longer see messages from the kernel during boot - I just get a black screen. Also, in Xorg.0.log I get errors like:
[ 33.444] (EE) open /dev/dri/card0: No such file or directory
[ 33.445] (EE) open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory
Additionally, acceleration no longer works in virtual box - I had to turn that off, else I got just a black screen in the virtual machine.
The previous kernel (4.8.16-300) did not have this problem, so this is a regression.
My video card is [AMD/ATI] Tonga PRO [Radeon R9 285/380] (rev f1)
I also see the following errors in the logwatch report:
WARNING: Kernel Errors Present
WARNING: CPU: 2 PID: 471 at drivers/gpu/drm/ttm/ ...: 1 Time(s)

It looks like firmware load for the video card is broken in this kernel.
I attached the full xorg log file and dmesg log
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.9.3-200
How reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot machine
video card firmware not loaded
video card firmware properly loaded

Moving this for the graphics team to take a look
https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=17314239 I pulled in a couple of 'low hanging' ATI graphics fixes to this build, can you please test this? This update will also be available in bodhi.
I tried 4.9.4-201.fc25 but it has the same problem.
I went back to 4.8.16-300.fc25. It behaves properly.
I tried 4.9.5-200.fc25. It too is bad. In fact, I got no video and no way to log in. I eventually needed to power cycle and reboot into the 4.8.16-300.fc25 kernel.
I'll add /var/log/messages from the failed boot.

Note that we get some suspicious messages:
Jan 25 08:17:44 saf kernel: amdgpu 0000:05:00.0: Invalid PCI ROM header signature: expecting 0xaa55, got 0xffff
Jan 25 08:17:44 saf kernel: fbcon: amdgpudrmfb (fb0) is primary device
Jan 25 08:18:44 saf systemd-udevd: seq 2983 '/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:03.0/0000:03:00.0/0000:04:10.0/0000:05:00.0' is taking a long time
Jan 25 08:18:45 saf systemd-udevd: seq 3759 '/devices/virtual/vtconsole/vtcon1' is taking a long time
At that point, with a black screen, I tried C-A-D with no effect. I finally wound up just power cycling.
I tried kernel 4.9.6 with similar bad results. I noticed that there was a similar kernel bug here:
so I cross-linked the bugs and added some new log files there.
I just upgraded to kernel 4.11.3-200.fc25.x86_64 and the problem no longer occurs.
Please close the bug.
