Linux - new kernel having problems

I have a new Ryzen5 with the amdgpu, a built-in graphics processor.  In Linux-land, nobody is happy with it.  The new kernel 4.17 is the first one to tackle it.  It still can't give me a main console (framebuffer), but the revisions have been getting better.

Lately, I went to rc5, but it was freezing again every few minutes.  I went back to rc4, which hardly freezes.  Two steps forward, and one step back.  :)  AMD has released all the documentation, and I'm sure things will improve.  I can't wait for rc6!
