libgl1-mesa-dri is only involved when you run an OpenGL app. The culprit
here is most likely xserver-xorg-video-ati, but it's a known problem
anyway. It should work with radeon DRM 1.23 or newer. The only way to
'fix' it will be to disable the DRI with an older DRM anyway, so this is
basically a case of 'don't do that' for now.

I think you mean 1904. The PMU resets the clock to that on unclean
poweroff. This doesn't 'damage the system'.
