Graphcis issues with latest mesa 21.0.3-1

Yesterday evening a new mesa update to version 21.0.3-1 came in which broke my graphics (amdgpu). I see graphics glitches all over the screen. I see the graphics glitches in gdm, lightdm, gnome and xfce.

Example:

Downgrading all mesa packages to previous version 21.0.2-1 fixes it.
(mesa lib32-mesa libva-mesa-driver mesa-vdpau)

5.11.16-zen1-1-zen

[2021-04-23T07:41:44+0200] [ALPM] upgraded mesa (21.0.2-1 -> 21.0.3-1)

No issues on my end in Cinnamon after the update. But then I don’t have the other packages on my system.

I have filed bug reports for it:

EDIT:

I tested also without libva-mesa-driver and mesa-vdpau. They have no influence on the bug. The mesa package alone is introducing the bug.

Strangely enough - no problems noted on my all AMD system. Must be selective!

My Graphcis setup. Just for the records.

No issues here either on Polaris GPU with zen kernel.

Must be a unique combination of GPU model / family, BIOS version + config, and kernel driver + config.

Just finished checking out another (AMD) system - no problems found…

I had the exact same error with my RX5600XT. Downgrading mesa and lib32-mesa did the job.

No issue on my RX590 on KDE Plasma.

Yeah… Also an RX5600XT here with the same issue…
also had to downgrade those packages

There’s a newer linux-firmware in testing (20210315.3568f96-2) with a couple of amdgpu-related changes:

Thank you mbod for picking up on this issue. I also have it, though had not identified the cause. (another win for the EndeavourOS forum)

…and today’s updated mesa 21.0.3-2 solves the issue.
