Thanks for reporting.

Merging with the other "radeon driver sometimes acts insane with
missing firmware" bugs for easy tracking, even though I expect they
will not all be solved at the same time. I think there was work on
one bug in this class recently upstream, though I can't seem to find
it in Linus's "master" (so if a fix is available, it's presumably only
in linux-next).

Hope that helps,
Jonathan
