On my new Sony Vaio laptop (VPCEC3L1E) the screen fades to white
(with backlights on, i think) instead of simply blanking out.
This can be reproduced by running "xset dpms force off" or
by simply waiting until powermanagement kicks in.
The graphics card used is a radeon 5xxx(?)
(01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Device 68e0).
This happens on console and in X.
I'll attach some pictures showing the issue.
Thanks for any help!
PS: I hope i did choose the correct product/component for
this type of bug.

Uuh, i forgot to mention some important things.
libdrm/mesa/xf86-video-ati from git (today).
Did this used to work previously? If so what kernel version?
Please attach a copy of your vbios rom following these instructions:
(use lspci to get the bus id)
cd /sys/bus/pci/devices/<pci bus id>
echo 1 > rom
cat rom > /tmp/vbios.rom
echo 0 > rom
