Same as for 3.0, this seems pointless without the dependent radeon
changes:

268ba0a drm/radeon: implement ACPI VFCT vbios fetch (v3)
7c3906d drm/radeon: convert radeon vfct code to use acpi_get_table_with_size
c61e277 drm/radeon: split ATRM support out from the ATPX handler (v3)

(For 3.2 I also needed these fixes from 3.3:

a3f83ab drm/radeon: fix invalid memory access in radeon_atrm_get_bios()
211fa4f drm/radeon: finish getting bios earlier
de47a9c drm/radeon: fix use after free in ATRM bios reading code.

but I don't know whether those would be sufficient to backport this lot
to 3.0.)
