Powerplay: Thermal controller fails to start on R9 Nano (Fiji)

Just got a Sapphire R9 Nano and noticed some problems while running with the latest powerplay kernel from agd5f (commit 256ca780500bc445752763f32b246dc9ee396b62). I don't know how well implemented this is just yet, but it seems like the thermal controller fails to start on my card due to hwmgr->start_thermal_controller->function_list being NULL:
[ 2.057417] powerplay: phm_start_thermal_controller
[ 2.057419] [ powerplay ] phm_dispatch_table Invalid Parameter! ffff880425cd2000 ffff880425cd2230 (null)
The first address refers to hwmgr, the second to rt_table and the last to rt_table->function_list.
This, in turn, causes the hwmon interface to not work, and sensors gives me a 0.0 temperature. I'm unsure if this causes the fan to not speed up, but I haven't noticed any sound difference when running valley for example.
I've noticed another (possibly unrelated) thing too, checking amdgpu_pm_info I can see that the mclk never changes, just the sclk. I did notice that it fails to find the virtual voltage 65281 in the vdd list, but of course I'm not sure this is related:
