Uh-oh. Better not install this driver then, for me.

Edit: I wonder if this is THE ISSUE that I've been having with my Ryzen R5 3600 rig, with it hard-freezing every roughly week or two, requiring me to hit the physical RESET button on the front of my case. Anyways, I'm glad that AMD identified the problem, at least (or it seems that they did), and possibly, once they fix this problem, I'll install whatever driver fixes this issue, and maybe my hard-freezes will be gone.

(You know, I don't think that I really had many / any hard-freezes, before I put in my RX 5700 and started mining / DC on it.)
