           Version: 2.5
    Kernel Version: 2.6.37-rc5
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
              Tree: Mainline
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1

        ReportedBy: kronos.it at gmail.com
        Regression: Yes

2.6.37-rc5 exhibits a slight screen (notebook panel) flickering, mostly
noticeable around text (e.g. white-on-black in xterm) with occasional
horizontal lines; using 2.6.36 as known "good" kernel I've bisected the issue
down to this commit:

    drm/radeon/kms: rework spread spectrum handling

    This patch reworks spread spectrum handling to enable it
    properly on lvds and DP/eDP links.  It also fixes several
    bugs in the old spread spectrum code.

    - Use the ss recommended reference divider if available
    when calculating the pll
    - Use the proper ss command tables on pre-DCE3 asics
    - Avoid reading past the end of the ss info tables
    - Enable ss on evergreen asics (lvds, dp, tmds)
    - Enable ss on DP/eDP links
