            Bug ID: 98271
           Summary: [radeonsi]Playing videos with vdpau or vaapi hardware
                    acceleration crashes my pc
           Product: Mesa
           Version: 12.0
          Hardware: x86-64 (AMD64)
                OS: Linux (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Other
          Assignee: mesa-dev at lists.freedesktop.org

I am using ArchLinux and when I've first updated mesa to 12.0 when it first
came out, my pc has been crashing while watching videos.

My radeon card is kaveri

I tested both vaapi and vdpau and both are affected with this, also i tried
different kernels from 4.4 lts to 4.6 and 4.7, it's not any different. Also I
tried both smplayer/mpv and vlc and both are affected.

When I've downgraded to mesa 11.2.2-1 and the problem was no more.

So I though if I waited out to see if it gets fixed, but still even though
12.0.3 came out, the problem is still present.

The problem is not really common, if I was watching videos for the whole day my
pc would crash only once.

How crash happens is screen goes blank and I can't hear my fans spinning even
tho lights are still on indicating that pc is still powered on and pressing any
buttons doesn't work except restarting it.
