Alright, I've just tried that and mpv seems to be waiting, no error in output
nor in dmesg, which should be as expected I guess.
Please tell me if you can think of any other thing I can test.

I looked at radeon_uvd.c's history quickly and there were a few in the time
period I'd think of.
Based on the date I'd guess possibly either of the kernel commits on
2016-05-05, probably nothing later, and before is so far away.

Is amdgpu using the same firmware as radeon for SI? if not maybe that's another
option for the culprit.
