I think I should correct some things I said above. (BTW if you don't know what
a Uber/Quiet mode is, there is a tiny on-board switch for switching between the
two: http://assets.hardwarezone.com/img/2013/11/R9_BIOS_Switch-600W.jpg)

The Quiet mode is pretty stable. Some apps might hang due to incorrect hardware
programming, but other than that, it's solid.

The Uber mode has some graphics corruption in some 3D apps. That might be the
reason why it hangs, but the hangs can be rare despite seeing a lot of
disappearing/flickering geometry.

I'm using Alex's drm-next-3.17-rebased-on-fixes. The other branch 3.17-wip
turned out be very unstable when I first fetched it, so you might want to avoid
it (not sure if the wip branch is working now).

I've figured out why Heaven and Valley hang. I have a workaround now and I'll
try to find the best way to fix it tomorrow.
