This here is officially outdated (massively so) and it wouldn't be
surprised that you'll experience tons of gpu hangs. Please upgrade to
something modern. We generally fix so many bugs, especially for newer hw
that anything than the latest released versions of libdrm, kernel, ddx and
mesa is not advised.
