Bug#926903: Installation-report addition

Hi Ben,

Thanks for trying to help.  You will note from my original report as
well as the follow-up on 28 April that I had installed the
'firmware-amd-graphics' package and still get the error message.

# apt search firmware-amd-graphics
> firmware-amd-graphics/testing, now 201901 14-1 all [installed]

# whereis firmware-amd-graphics
> firmware-amd-graphics:

Despite above response I am able to install and remove the package
easily.  But it makes no visible difference to the graphics or to
dmesg error message.

Changing to a less ancient monitor has helped center the screen but
there still remains the problem of font size:

a) tty1-6 use large fonts
b) MATE Terminal font size is normal
c) XTerm & UXTerm has small windows and small font
d) emacs and pluma have normal fonts

I can live with all these but it would be nice to get to the root of
the problem.  I expect you might like to fix it before stable release.

Regards, Tom Thekathyil
