  Instable DisplayPort with latest radeon driver

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm using an external monitor on my notebook via DisplayPort => DVI

  After the latest Xenial updates, which included a kernel update to
  4.4.0-13.29, I had massive problems, with black screen after reboot to
  black screen after suspend with the attached monitor.

  xrandr still showed the monitor correctly. Additionally I had graphic
  glitches. Sometimes I managed to re-enable the monitor by detaching
  it, changing some window in the KDE session and re-attaching it. But
  it didn't always work. dmesg had some entries like:

  [drm:radeon_dp_link_train [radeon]] *ERROR* displayport link status

  The 12.27 kernel contained a "Pull in upstream AMD code (amdgpu) in
  Xenial (LP: #1546572)", which also includes "drm/radeon: fix dp link
  rate selection (v2)" patch

  So I took the old radeon modules source from 11.26, compiled and
  installed it for 13.29, updated the initramfs and my problems are

  I didn't yet test the explicit patch. as I don't know where the
  patchset was taken from.
