Description of problem:

received a kernel update to kernel-4.9.4-100.fc24.x86_64
and my graphic card Sapphire AMD GPro 4200 seems to stop
working anymore.

I do see the BIOS and the textual output when Linux 
starts, but when the system is switching to graphics
mode, the display show no image anymore.

Running the kernel-4.8.16-200.fc24.x86_64 with same
constellation does work. I have to ASUS PB278 monitors
connected via DisplayLink.

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

kernel-4.9.4-100.fc24.x86_64 not working
kernel-4.8.16-200.fc24.x86_64 working

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start computer
2.wait for GUI

Actual results:
Graphical devices do not work

Expected results:
Yeh, they should work.

Can you please test with the latest linux-firmware package? There have been some changes there that may affect AMD graphics.

Dear Sirs,

i noticed a new kernel, that is beeing uploaded now.
kernel... I do not see a new firmwarepackage.

My current firmware is 20161205-69.git1ddce49.fc24.
This one still not helped to solve the problem this morning.

Ok, let's see iff the kernel-update fixed it!

Comment 3 GroovieMan 2017-01-24 19:47:56 UTC
Bad news ... we have got a kernel freeze.

There is no log written. The only thing i see
is the textual kernel-start, then he tries to
switch to the graphical fedora sign but nothing
happens then.

Comment 4 GroovieMan 2017-01-25 08:50:20 UTC
Please make sure, that you do not remove the
functional kernel-4.8 from the system!

Comment 5 GroovieMan 2017-01-28 08:34:56 UTC
I changed it to a kernel freeze, cause the system
is completely dead after both monitors get no singals.

The system does not make any activity it is DEAD!
Kernel 4.9.5 is also affected, so i filed Bug 1417363.
I added there a system description.
