I've been doing some quick testing on the RVII to try to answer
that today, and with some of the early ROCm 4 versions,
complemented with Linux 5.15 (a custom build), I'm afraid I
still needed the non-free firmware set for rocminfo to see the
GPU.  I might want to retry on top of a proper Debian Sid with
the very latest rocm userland tools when I can set that up.
