Default Thinkpad W500, Radeon issue

This week, I tried to change the GPU of my Thinkpad.
It has an hybrid video card, Intel & Radeon.

I modified the BIOS settings, the Radeon is recognized by the kernel, but the firmware fails to load, and the GPU acceleration is disabled.
I still can use the Radeon, but it makes no difference with the Intel GPU.

I also made a dualboot OpenBSD 5.6/Windows 7.
Windows fully recognize and support the Radeon, I can clearly see the difference with the Intel GPU.

Any idea how to solve that ?

Code:
drm: initializing kernel modesetting (RV635 0x1002:0x9591 0x17AA:0x2127).
radeondrm0: VRAM: 512M 0x0000000000000000 - 0x000000001FFFFFFF (512M used)
radeondrm0: GTT: 512M 0x0000000020000000 - 0x000000003FFFFFFF

The complete dmesg is available in the OpenBSD General section, or just here.

Do you have the firmware?
What happens if you run
Code:
# fw_update
?

The fw_update command just updated the firmware

Code:
# fw_update
radeondrm-firmware-20131002p0: ok
Worked fine, no more issue in dmesg :

Code:
drm: initializing kernel modesetting (RV635 0x1002:0x9591 0x17AA:0x2127).
radeondrm0: VRAM: 512M 0x0000000000000000 - 0x000000001FFFFFFF (512M used)
radeondrm0: GTT: 512M 0x0000000020000000 - 0x000000003FFFFFFF
drm: probing gen 2 caps for device 0x8086:0x2a41 = 1/0
drm: PCIE GART of 512M enabled (table at 0x0000000000040000).
radeondrm0: 1920x1200
wsdisplay0 at radeondrm0 mux 1: console (std, vt100 emulation), using wskbd0
wskbd1: connecting to wsdisplay0
wsdisplay0: screen 1-5 added (std, vt100 emulation)

Thanks ibara
