The firmware for radeon has always been proprietary, but you only need it for

Pure modesetting should still work without. The problem is that we rarely test
without the firmware, so this breaks from time to time.

Since your bug sounds like an external display still works I would expect that
acceleration actually works perfectly fine. So the firmware most likely isn't
the cause of the problem.

I would rather guess that it is an issue with the newer kernel. Please try
downgrading that one first and see if you can find a working version. Then
bisect from those two points in time.
