Only xf86-video-ati was updated updated from 7.8.0 to include the
patches from git after 7.8.0 ( 11 patches to be found here :
) I'm not sure which one these actually solved the problem ( maybe
more than one  ?  ).

Judging only by their explanations I'd say one could have easily fixed
my problem. Other than applying these 11 patches ( 10 if you don't
count the build fix for old Xorg ) I really did nothing and not I have
no more freezes.

Let me know if you need additional details for this. I could do some
more testing if needed.
