This should be fixed by the following series:
https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/dri-devel/2018-March/168012.html

Please verify that by testing the series on the machine in question.
I'm hoping to get those patches in for 4.17. I suspect that your
patch may not be necessary then.

I don't quite follow, when SG is enabled but hda_intel doesn't bind
to the AMD audio device, how are you going to stream audio to
external displays? Are external DP/HDMI ports muxed to the integrated
GPU when SG is enabled?

Thanks,
