Just an FYI, I downgraded the kernel back to 4.7.6 and linux-firmware (which was recently updated as well) and I'm still getting the freeze issue so something else is obviously going on. I'll keep investigating but thanks for your feedback m3thodic, greatly appreciated.

I cannot boot after 4.8.1 update. It complains about missing "/lib/modules/4.8.0-macbook/modules.devname" in initramfs.

I'm using X11 and I have the same 20-radeon.conf that you do:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Radeon"
Driver "radeon"
Option "AccelMethod" "glamor"
Option "DRI" "3"
Option "TearFree" "on"
EndSection

@gnunn just out of curiosity, are you using for X drivers? Here are the contents of my /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-radeon.conf
Section "Device"
Identifier "Radeon"
Driver "radeon"
Option "AccelMethod" "glamor"
Option "DRI" "3"
Option "TearFree" "on"
EndSection

Also when's the last time you booted into OSX and installed any firmware updates? I just updated the package to 4.8.1 -- any better luck using that version?

It's the 11,5 model (Macbook Pro 15") with the AMD 370x graphics adapter.

I'm running this kernel on a MacBook pro 15", MacBook Air 11" and an Intel NUC (to leverage the new speed-stepping code) all without any lock-ups. What model MacBook Pro are you running?

gnunn commented on 2016-10-10 20:12

I just upgraded to 4.8-2 and I'm having issues with my macbook pro 15 (with AMD 370x) locking up periodically (twice in the last hour) and requiring a hard reboot. Anyone else having a similar issue?

For any users of the brcmsmac or brcmfmac modules, check out my latest package backports-patched-bcma package (type i for interactive mode, select defconfig and then select brcmsmac or brcmfmac).
