amdgpu disables fan by default and burns HW
Submitted by Stas
Assigned to Default DRI bug account
I have radeon R9 380.
After the KMS driver activates, the fans on
the GPU stops. They can be activated again by
properly setting up fancontrol, but this wasn't
configured on my PC. As the result, for the last
few years I have replaced many motherboards, all
starting to have bad capacitors around the video
card. But only now I have noticed that the fans
are not rotating... :(
The driver should activate fans by default, or
don't touch the initial settings (fans are rotating
before linux have started), but not stop them by default.
