  Blank / Black screens on boot half the time [R9 280X]

Status in Ubuntu GNOME:
Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have 3 monitors hooked up.

  Roughly every other time I reboot, I get past my grub screen and then
  the left and right side monitors are on and "awake" but blank, and the
  center screen never comes out of sleep mode.

  The boot never progresses past this point and you can't switch to
  another virtual console or anything. It's just apparently frozen

  If I hit the reset button on the case, it usually boots to the login
  screen just fine the next time around.
