Yeah, I'm aware. The latest 18.04 kernel using the latest DisplayLink driver for 18.04 did indeed break DisplayLink with AMDGPU, which is the main reason I'm using the 5.3.1 DisplayLink driver as it's an older version that seems to be working fine with the latest kernel alongside AMDGPU-PRO.

Without these workarounds, my external monitor exhibits high latency and really bad screen tearing. The monitor behaves fine with AMDGPU-PRO, so I doubt the fix is impossible. Hopefully some sort of update is given soon considering it seems to be affecting AMDGPU users as a whole and is likely keeping some, like myself, from updating to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
