You've heard of the patch from Denis [0] to make the radeon kernel module 
work again in free distros and not just fall over and die when the 
proprietary firmware isn't there? I'm writing to suggest applying it, if 
you aren't already. I also changed the patch to one that can be easily 
applied [1], since his patch was against blobbed Linux. I've added this to 
my APT repository for Linux-libre, starting with version 4.1.4 and already 
have reports of success from people on IRC.
