Looking at the latest AMD FirePro drivers, they have versions that
support RHEL and CentOS, so in turn can I assume one of those might
support Fedora as well? They also seem to have a generic Linux driver
for older OS versions.

I do see a few AMD FirePro cards in the HCL that seem to be working, but
not the specific one I'm looking at, so that's somewhat encouraging...
