Okay, downgrading severity, setting better title and merging.

If you mean https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5623#c3 , as
the next comment indicates, that reverts a different fix, so it won't be
merged upstream as-is.

I'm not sure this issue alone warrants anything like that, but as
there's a number of regressions in the radeon driver compared to 6.8,
something along those lines pointing to all the known regressions and
how they're being worked on might be nice.
