Well, thanks for waiting for an answer to your question before
filing. ;) Reassigning to xserver-xorg-video-ati for now.
Also adjusting the severity, as the HW clock getting reset does not
indicate any damage to the system per se, and running with DRI enabled
is not exactly a human right in the first place. ;)

This is the version of the DRM core (the module called 'drm').

This is the version of the radeon DRM. So obviously, there's more to
this case than just the DRM being too old.

X.Org doesn't ship any DRM anymore.
Does any of the following make a difference?
* Commenting out Option "AGPMode", "EnablePageFlip" or
* Not loading the "ddc", "int10", "vbe" and "v4l" modules in
