Public bug reported:

I am running Fedora 24 in my host machine and I built an Ubuntu VM and
assigned my R9 290 to it. I already made this work with Windows, but
linux has been harder.

This is the output inside my Ubuntu VM:

I know there isn't a problem related to the pass-through because when I
start Ubuntu DVD, plymouth shows fine on both QXL and my other monitor.
But whenever X11 starts, the monitor attached to AMD GPU do not work.

Looking at X11 logs, it recognizes my r9 290 and the monitor attached to
it but no image is shown. Here are the warning and error messages on the

Is there a way that I can make it work as it works with plymouth?
