The state of amdgpu on DragonFly

I've been really considering using DragonFly BSD on the desktop.
However, my PC has an RX 580 graphics card. I see that DragonFly
has recently gotten support for amdgpu but in the past release since I
haven't managed to actually get it to work. I have only gotten
modesetting to work, in which case there would be no hardware
acceleration which isn't ideal for a desktop.

Is it possible to get hardware acceleration with the amdgpu driver, and
how does one activate it in the first place (I cannot find anything
equivalent to drm-kmod on DragonFly)?
