It looks like you also have some power management related issues.  Does booting with radeon.dpm=0 on the kernel command line in grub help?  Also does the monitor support audio?  You might also try radeon.audio=0.

Pretty much the same story with those options..

[    8.162285] [drm:si_dpm_set_power_state [radeon]] *ERROR* si_enable_smc_cac failed
[    8.170753] [drm:radeon_dp_link_train [radeon]] *ERROR* displayport link status failed
[    8.170778] [drm:radeon_dp_link_train [radeon]] *ERROR* clock recovery failed

I did manage to get it to display something for a while. By disabling DP1.2 with the
LCDs OSD, but then it would only do a maximum of 1024x768. And after a reboot,
I saw the same messages above, and straight to power saving.
