Bug Description

[Impact]
An OEM system is suffering from screen corruption when the touchpad is used. This would be fixed by backporting these commits from 4.18:

ebdef28ebbcf767 drm/amdgpu/gmc: steal the appropriate amount of vram for fw hand-over (v3)
6f752ec2c20c6a5 drm/amdgpu: Free VGA stolen memory as soon as possible.

[Test case]
boot a fixed kernel on the affected system, check that it doesn't suffer from the corruption

[Regression potential]
low, this has been upstream since 4.18, and AMD asked us to backport these

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-bionic' to 'verification-done-bionic'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-bionic' to 'verification-failed-bionic'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!
