Yes, this is required by AMD GPUs.

This is presumably a kernel bug.  I'm going to assume you're using the
current version in testing/unstable, which is 3.2.35-2.

Could you try the test packages referred to from
<http://bugs.debian.org/687442#131>?  I can't promise they will make any
difference but they might.
