On my machine with HD5770 manufactured by Gigabyte I have no problem

As rv280 is an old GPU (2002) and as futur is power management, can I
suggest to add a kernel command line option to disable power management
but let power management enable by default ?
In this particular case it probably isn't the power management stuff causing
the problem, since the problem (one at least one with similar symptoms)
persisted after the power management stuff was configured out.
Remember that the object here is to avoid regressions. So the argument is
more along the lines is power management so risky that it's not worth slowing
down other testing to try it out. Old versus new shouldn't be a significant
deciding factor here.
For 2.6.35 it makes more sense to try to get power management more thoroughly
tested even if it slows down some other testing.
