You mean 4.4-rc4, don't you?

Seeing the same thing on my Sam460ex and Kernel 4.4 .
Having an isssue when adding Radeon TAHITI_vce.bin firmware to kernel.
When not compiled into 4.4.0rc kernels system boots but with error messages :

Direct firmware load for radeon/TAHITI_vce.bin failed with error -2
Can't load firmware "radeon/TAHITI_vce.bin

When I add the TAHITI_vce.bin firmware into the kernel it results in an oops:

Unable to handle kernel paging request for data at address 0xf000001c
Reported to the the dri-devel mailing list last month.

I have recently released the Alpha9 of kernel 4.5.

New:

- Linux Git log
- New Nemo patch 4.5-3

FYI: There are two kernels with different integrated firmware packages

vmlinux-4.5-a9-firmware-amd-graphics_20151018-2 (new firmware package)
vmlinux-4.5-a9-firmware-nonfree_0.44 (old firmware package)

Download: vmlinux-4.5-alpha9-AmigaONE_X1000.tar.gz

R7 and R9 users: Please test vmlinux-4.5-a9-firmware-nonfree_0.44.

"R7 and R9 users: Please test vmlinux-4.5-a9-firmware-nonfree_0.44."

Sorry... Not better

http://zzd10h.amiga-ng.org/X1000/Linux/ ... Serial.txt

Therefore, still something wrong between 4.4.3 and 4.4.4 kernels.

Thanks for testing. I am compiling the Alpha10 with the new byte swap patch by Alex Deucher.

Spectre660 was able to boot with the byte swap patch.
Hi All
The patch from Alex Deucher fixes the problem on the Sam460ex.

Success booting with Alpha10!
Modules installed to libs/modules. What further testing do you need done?

@xeno74

Will you be applying the byte swap code to the 4.4 kernel and patch file?

Fantastic! Thank you for testing. Maybe you could test the RC1 on Monday.
