Hi Christian,

Thanks for the info. FYI, I've also opened a Firefox bug for that at:
Feel free to comment since you have a better understanding of what's
going on.

One last question: right now I'm running 4.15.0 with the "offending"
patch reverted. Is that safe to run or are there possible bad
interactions with other changes.

That should work without problems.

But I just had another idea as well, if you want you could still test the
new code path which will be using in 4.17.

While Firefox may do some strange things is not about only Firefox.

With your patches my EPYC box is unusable with  4.15++ kernels.
The whole Desktop is acting weird.  This one is using
an Cape Verde PRO [Radeon HD 7750/8740 / R7 250E] GPU.

Box is  2 * EPYC 7281 with 128 GB ECC RAM

Also a 14C Xeon box with a HD7700 is broken same way.

The hardware is irrelevant for this. We need to know what software stack you use on top of it.

E.g. desktop environment/Mesa and DDX version etc...

Everything breaks in X .. scrolling , moving windows , flickering etc.

reverting f4c809914a7c3e4a59cf543da6c2a15d0f75ee38 and
from an 4.15 kernel makes things work again.

Backporting all the detection logic is to invasive, but you could just go
into drivers/gpu/drm/amd/amdgpu/amdgpu_ttm.c and forcefull use the other
code path.

Just look out for "#ifdef CONFIG_SWIOTLB" checks and disable those.

Well you really can't be serious about these suggestions ? Are you ?

Telling peoples to #if 0 random code is not a solution.

That is for testing and not a permanent solution.

You broke existsing working userland with your patches and at least
please fix that for 4.16.

I can help testing code for 4.17/++ if you wish but that is *different* storry.

Please test Alex's amd-staging-drm-next branch from git://
