I deleted the drm-next-kmod package, but I had to install xf86-video-ati-legacy (as in the bug report) in stead of xf86-video-ati (got removed automatically by pkg by installing the legacy driver). I also made en explicit /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ati.conf file to be sure the driver was selected. Then everything worked.
