Bug description:
  SRU Request:

  Support for the amdgpu-pro driver has been available in Artful since May 
2017. We need to backport the code to the other stable releases.

  [Test Case]
  1) Enable the -proposed repository, and install the new 

  2) Make sure the amdgpu-pro packages are installed (if not, install
  them, and restart your system).

  3) Check that power saving mode is supported:

  amdgpu-pro-px --ispx

  If it returns true, then it is supported by the hardware.

  4) Set power saving mode:

  sudo amdgpu-pro-px --mode powersaving

  5) Restart your computer and check that the "Enabling power saving
  mode for amdgpu-pro" line is in your /var/log/gpu-manager.log.

  6) Install the mesa-utils package:
  sudo apt install mesa-utils

  7) Check the output of the following command (which should mention Intel):
  glxinfo | grep OpenGL

  [Regression Potential]
  Low, as the feature is disabled by default, unless users set power saving
