Bug Description

SRU Request:

[Impact]
Support for the amdgpu-pro driver has been available in Artful since May 2017. We need to backport the code to the other stable releases.

[Test Case]
1) Enable the -proposed repository, and install the new "ubuntu-drivers-common"

2) Make sure the amdgpu-pro packages are installed (if not, install them, and restart your system).

3) Check that power saving mode is supported:

amdgpu-pro-px --ispx

If it returns true, then it is supported by the hardware.

4) Set power saving mode:

sudo amdgpu-pro-px --mode powersaving

5) Restart your computer and check that the "Enabling power saving mode for amdgpu-pro" line is in your /var/log/gpu-manager.log.

6) Install the mesa-utils package:
sudo apt install mesa-utils

7) Check the output of the following command (which should mention Intel):
glxinfo | grep OpenGL

[Regression Potential]
Low, as the feature is disabled by default, unless users set power saving manually.

Comments #10 and #9 on the mentioned bug do not show that the verification was done, those are automatic messages mentioning the update getting accepted into -proposed for verification. For a but to be considered verified by the SRU team, the bug needs to have its verification-needed-SERIES tag switched to verification-done-SERIES along with a comment mentioning what steps of testing have been performed on which version with what results. Sadly here none of that is present, so we cannot release the package to -updates yet.

I tried AMN4-DVT1-C2 with amdgpu-pro-17.10-414273,
not so "Enabling power saving mode for amdgpu-pro" line in /var/log/gpu-manager.log in step 5.

But it shows intel in step 7.
