    Post Configuring AMD RADEON 520 in a Hybrid graphics setup with Wayland

    The tl;dr about this question is - Is my radeon 520 dedicated card working fine? Do I need to set "xrandr --setprovideroffloadsink radeon Intel" in Wayland to configure hybrid graphics? Xrandr is not working well in weston/wayland.

    Long version:
    I installed Ubuntu 17.10 on my newly bought HP Laptop (Model: HP 15-BS576TX) which has a dedicated AMD 520 2GB DDR3 graphics card and Intel HD 620 onboard graphics in a Kabylake Core i5 processor system. This is the first time I'm installing Linux on a hybrid graphics card setup on a laptop.

    Now, Ubuntu 17.10 defaults with Xwayland instead of Xorg/XFree86. I find it confusing to configure AMD Radeon 520 dedicated graphics. The confusing part is xrander --listproviders only list the intel hd 620 integrated graphics.
    xrandr --listproviders 
    Providers: number : 0
    But, lspci -knnn shows that AMD Radeon 520 card is detected:
    01:00.0 Display controller [0380]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Sun XT [Radeon HD 8670A/8670M/8690M / R5 M330 / M430 / R7 M520] [1002:6660] (rev 83)

    and Integrated Intel HD 620 graphics:

    I'm booting with "radeon.modeset=1" which is added to the grub bootloader entry.

    Now, if I run any app with DRI_PRIME=1 it works and shows below info:

     :~$ DRI_PRIME=1 glxinfo |grep -i Opengl*
    OpenGL vendor string: X.Org
    OpenGL renderer string: AMD HAINAN (DRM 2.50.0 / 4.13.0-16-generic, LLVM 5.0.0)
    OpenGL core profile version string: 4.5 (Core Profile) Mesa 17.2.2
    OpenGL core profile shading language version string: 4.50
    So, I assumed Radeon 520 is working fine. Then, noticed that there is no mention of gallium 3d? But, why Xrandr is not showing dedicated card as one of the providers?

    I see that there is amdgpu driver module also loaded. From the list, R520 card seems to be supported by the radeon driver.
     lsmod |grep radeon
    radeon               1470464  0
    ttm                    94208  2 amdgpu,radeon
    i2c_algo_bit           16384  3 amdgpu,radeon,i915
    drm_kms_helper        167936  3 amdgpu,radeon,i915
    drm                   356352  28 amdgpu,radeon,i915,ttm,drm_kms_helper
    Wnat needs to be done now? I have no custom scripts or files placed in /etc/X11 directory .
