Various temporary UI freezes when booting Ubuntu 18.10.
dmesg reports various amdgpu warnings and errors.
Also tested with 4.20.0-042000rc6-generic kernel
Original launchpad bug report:
With 4.20.0-042000rc7-generic it is actually worse. The system hangs with a black screen while booting with power adapter connected. Without power adapter it does boot.

hey i have opened a bug report here: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=201077
and i want to let you know that you can use 4.16 or 4.15 kernels for temporary solution and all the people effected from this bug seem to using aspire 5 a515-41g laptop, also i updated to 1.09 bios and still there is no fix.
amd wanted from me to bisect the kernel but i could only found the main commit and it contains dozens of other commits, but if you want to bisect the kernel that's might be helpful
I have bisected the bug, also i have reported it: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=201077
its been a month since reporting it to linux kernel amd team, they acknowledged the problem.
its actually been more then two months since reporting it, its not fixed yet

You (or anyone else) needs to volunteer to investigate and provide a patch.
