Support for Radeon HD 6970M

The man page for the radeon driver lists mostly desktop GPUs, so which mobile GPUs are supported is unclear.
For my particular case, my Radeon HD 6970M is based on the desktop HD 6850, which is listed as being supported. However the GPU, which worked fine on Ubuntu 15.04 with fglrx drivers, has no supported driver found on Ubuntu 16.04 which has dropped fglrx in favor of the radeon and amdgpu drivers.
Is the HD 6970M supported? Is there a way I could force the driver to work with the 6970M for purpose of testing?
I request that supported mobile GPUs be added to the Radeon driver man page.
