If you have no problems sacrificing all the acceleration by your AMD
GPU, you can try using libre uvesafb for Xorg graphics.  What I wrote
at <https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-guix/2020-04/msg00320.html>
was not necessary there but maybe is in your case.  That said, this
situation is far from ideal, but I don’t think the AMD firmware will
be freed (if there is no other way).
