Description Cedric Sodhi 2011-05-02 09:13:58 UTC
VGASwitcheroo enabled hybrid setup with Intel Arrandale and Radeon CEDAR

01:00.0 0300: 1002:68e0 (rev ff) (prog-if ff)
	!!! Unknown header type 7f
	Kernel driver in use: radeon

(lspci -vn). When the Radeon is powered down and X is running dmesg is filled up with thousands of 

radeon 0000:01:00.0: IH ring buffer overflow (0xFFFFFFFF, 15, 65550)

which does not disappear, even if debug is disabled. I think the radeon driver does not understand that it's card is powered down. Can this be fixed?

There seems to be something up with "the ring", I've got a problem since post 2.6.35: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=691326

I think this should be fixed in a newer kernel.  Can you try with a newer kernel?
