In researching this I've come across a lot of mention of flickering
issues with various Radeon 9x00 chipsets, on Windows as well as Linux.

The symptoms seem to suggest that the framebuffer sets a register

There are a whole host of settings that can be set on the kernel boot
command-line to control the video modes in this situation. If you're
feeling particularly resolved then doing some systematic testing with
differing options and recording the results might help narrow-down the
issue and show it is frame-buffer related, or else point the finger
somewhere else.
