That option is just a carry over from when the amdgpu was copied from
radeon.  There is some code for older asics left over from when the
code was originally ported from radeon.  If you want hdmi audio
support you need to use the new dc modesetting code we are working on:

As for radeon, a bisection would help.  If both drivers worked before
and now both have issues, I'd suggest looking at the hda audio driver.
