How do I load the config? And do I need to add anything into grub?

owen.geer,

The .config is found as .config at the top level of your kernel tree.
Do not use it as is, its unlikely to work. Open it with less in a window beside your own
Code:
make menuconfig
and use the video settings, around DRM and amdgpu to guide you.
You can search for the symbol names shown by less with / in menuconfig. Omit the CONFIG_

IF you do this in a new kernel, your grub menu will need to be updated. If you overwrite an existing kernel, the old grub menu entry will load the new kernel.
