Another option I've tried (which also hung the system if kernel mode setting was enabled)
was to build the radeon driver as a module. That way doesn't need the firmware in the kernel,
it's enough to put it in /lib/firmware

Yes it does, I'd never waited that long before. I can't see myself waiting that long at each
boot. Interesting to see that it does work though.
