*** linux 4.9 with KALLSYMS_ALL=y is required

*** mesa-noglvnd is required The mesa package in Arch now includes the glvnd libGL, which conflicts with the AMDGPU-PRO libGL. You'll need to replace mesa with mesa-noglvnd.

The xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu-pro package provides drivers for Xorg versions 1.15 up to 1.18. In the package the default Xorg version is set to 1.15 via a softlink pointing to the directory with the 1.15 drivers.

You can see that on startup Xorg loads the driver from the correct path, but the softlink it uses along that path simpy points to a driver version too old for you Xorg.
From your Xorg.log:
>> (II) Loading /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/amdgpu-pro/xorg/modules/drivers/

The amdgpu-pro directory looks like this:
drwxr-xr-x 3 sergej users 4096 17. Mär 03:31 1.15
drwxr-xr-x 3 sergej users 4096 17. Mär 03:31 1.16
drwxr-xr-x 3 sergej users 4096 17. Mär 03:31 1.17
drwxr-xr-x 3 sergej users 4096 17. Mär 03:31 1.18
lrwxrwxrwx 1 sergej users 4 17. Mär 03:31 xorg -> 1.15

To set the correct link you can do the following:
> cd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/amdgpu-pro/
> rm xorg
> ln -s 1.18 xorg

But even after this amdgpu-pro probably still won't work. Looks like AMDs release only works on older kernels where the amdgpu-pro DKMS modules can be compiled successfully.

Looks like the firmware package is going to be useless when the next linux-firmware will be released:

Looks like the xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu-pro module requires older You may want to use Arch's xf86-video-amdgpu instead - however I have no idea if it will work with pro's GL drivers.

I did install and overwrite, but Xorg didn't start and not sure what's the issue. Xorg.log:

About firmware files? Yeah, I guess you can try to ignore the amdgpu-pro-firmware package, and run it with the firmware from linux-firmware. Or, alternatively, overwrite the files - and later simply reinstall linux-firmware to get the old ones back.

Complains about files already existing in filesystem, not brave enough to force install :(

I have a supported card (R9 Nano), going to test.

Note: I don't have any idea if it works. Unfortunately, upstream AMDGPU does not work on my Athlon 5350, and I don't have time to compile the AMDGPU PRO's kernel modules, as they work only with Linux 4.2, and the chances that they will fix the problem are small.
