[drm:amdgpu_job_timedout [amdgpu]] *ERROR* ring sdma0 timeout, signaled seq

I Didn't experience any issues up to Zorin 16.3. Since fresh installing 17 I'm getting logged out 4 or 5 times a day. Seems to happen when I'm using the touchpad. Doesn't happen while watching youtube etc.
Lots of amdgpu errors in the logs. Any suggestions?

You are certainly not alone in this, with users on Fedora, Arch and Manjaro also reporting similar issues:

Most respondents mentioned trying later kernels. I wonder if any tried installing an earlier kernel in case the later ones had a regression?
