I've already files this bug at freedesktop, but I think its worth mentioning it here too.
You can find all information directly here, I do not want to produce duplicated information:

Additional info:
* Affects 4.7.2 and 4.8-rc3

The LTS kernel is still functional. However if 4.8 or 4.9 becomes LTS and this bug doesnt get fixed till then I (and others) will have no display output at all and the arch install will be broken.
Initramfs is not affected for some reason (luckly). I've set this to critical as suggested in the IRC.
This task depends upon

4.7.5-1 and 4.8 (from AUR) solve this issue.
