RADEON --
Another batch of AMDGPU DRM driver fixes has been sent in for landing in Linux 4.7.

These latest AMDGPU fixes are for taking care of some PowerPlay issues for Radeon RX 480 "Polaris" and Tonga (e.g. Radeon R9 285) graphics cards. There are no other changes outside of these Polaris/Tonga PowerPlay fixes.

The list of these five fixes can be found via this pull request. The Polaris PowerPlay fixes don't have anything to do yet with the Radeon RX 480 power issue that's still being analyzed on the Linux side.
