Bug Description

According to the information provided in lp:1592650, AMD graphics card using "amdgpu-pro" drivers do not use the same method for switching GPUs than the "amdgpu" open source drivers.

- On AMDGPU-PRO(AKA Hybrid), AMD provides a script ("amdgpu-pro-px") for GPU switching. AMGPU-Pro driver will be released via a packaged delivery, and the script will be installed via driver installation.
- On AMDGPU(AKA all-open), PRIME can be used for GPU switching.

When amdgpu-pro drivers are installed, a metapackage named "amdgpu-pro" is installed on the system.

Checkbox providers and resources providers have to be adapted to take this into account.
