Your Xorg.?.log would be helpful here.
Comment 4 noc 2014-12-02 12:25:11 UTC
Fixed by using properly acceleration mode as suggested in xorg.conf:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Oland PRO [Radeon R7 240]
Section "Device"
        Option      "AccelMethod"           "glamor"
        Driver      "radeon"

02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Turks XT [Radeon HD 6670/7670]
Section "Device"
        Option      "AccelMethod"           "EXA"
        Driver      "radeon"
Comment 5 noc 2014-12-02 12:35:37 UTC
All USE is correct. We must compile x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati with USE="glamor" and x11-libs/glamor USE="-gles"

But in "Device" Section of xorg.conf use "AccelMethod" "EXA"!
Comment 6 noc 2014-12-02 14:37:56 UTC
With xorg.conf оption "AccelMethod" "glamor" bug exist!
Provided solution to change "AccelMethod" from "glamor" to "EXA" suitable only for ARUBA, BARTS, TURKS, CAICOS, CAYMAN 
For newer  CAPE VERDE, PITCAIRN, TAHITI, OLAND, HAINAN, ... with glamor acceleration it is bug!!!

System running multihead xorg servers:
X0 on Oland PRO [Radeon R7 240]
X1 on Turks XT [Radeon HD 6670/7670]

For Oland PRO [Radeon R7 240] this bug make X server unusable, some times hang computer, some times hang only one monitor. Switch to console impossible because of artifacts. Second X server on other card may continue working...

Created attachment 390782 [details]

If on Turks XT [Radeon HD 6670/7670] switch from EXA to glamor, witch is not recommended, we do not have hang up, X servers "like reload GPU" and after some time continue running with all apps, firefox with some artifacts is not usable!

I use xorg build with USE=dmx so run 2 X servers for 2 kde sessions with ISOLATED devises.

Try x11-libs/glamor-0.6.0-r1 with same result..
Comment 12 Chí-Thanh Christopher Nguyễn gentoo-dev 2014-12-03 15:44:26 UTC
Can you try to use >=x11-base/xorg-server-1.16[glamor] instead of x11-libs/glamor?

Today I try media-libs/mesa-10.3.1 with same result.. Next week will try xorg-server-1.16.2 or later.
Comment 14 Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2015-11-12 05:55:05 UTC
Please try xorg-server[glamor]-1.18, xf86-video-ati-7.6.1, and mesa-11.0.4.
Comment 15 noc 2015-11-17 07:02:18 UTC
I only try x11-base/xorg-server-1.16.4[glamor], x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati-7.6.1[glamor], and media-libs/mesa-10.3.7-r1.
