Description:
I start ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Kernel 4.15.0.33) in textmode;
-> as soon as the kernel-module radeon.ko is loaded the screen starts flickering
when starting the grafic-mode the flickering continues; so the screen is unusable.

when setting the option "radeon.modeset=0" (thus: not use radeon drivers) the screen does not flicker
but the resolution is limited to 1400x1050 (instead of natural 1680x1050)
so I can not use this as work-around

when using the old ubuntu 14.04.05 LTS (Kernel 3.13.0-157)
the screen is o.k. NO flickering in textmode, nice grafic, NO flickering
xrandr tells: 1680x1050 60.1

so I must stay on old ubuntu 14.04.05 ???
