Okay the reason you're not seeing deadlocks is because the output poll
worker is not enabled. And the output poll worker is not enabled
because your discrete GPU doesn't have any outputs:
[ 0.265568] [drm:dc_create] *ERROR* DC: Number of connectors is zero!
The outputs are only polled if there are connectors which have the
DRM_CONNECTOR_POLL_CONNECT or DRM_CONNECTOR_POLL_DISCONNECT flag set.
And that only ever seems to be the case for VGA and DVI.
We know based on bugzilla reports that hybrid graphics laptops do exist
which poll outputs with radeon and nouveau. If there are no laptops
supported by amdgpu whose discrete GPU has polled connectors, then
patch [5/5] would be unnecessary. That is for Alex to decide.
However that is very good to know, so thanks a lot for your testing
efforts, much appreciated!
