I have a total of 8 of the S7150x2 cards in 4 hosts and I'm experience some host reboots that I'm trying to track down. These logs were located and I was curious if anybody had more information on them if they could be an issue:

Don't know if you have figured this out yet or not, but what we have been informed about this is, certain versions of the Radeon Pro drivers contain some code that may cause this issue to occur when starting VMs on a host. We have had better experiences with the 18.Q3.1 driver, but a big caveat comes in how to deploy them.
Our deployment process is now this due to this issue:
1. Remove MxGPUs from all VMs on a host
2. Enter maintenance mode on the host.
3. Reboot the host.
4. This step depends how you deploy your VMs for how much time/effort this takes: Full Clones, Linked Clones, etc.
Hopefully this helps and I hope AMD gets better at sharing important details like this going forward. Not a fun moment when doing a the guest driver update caused outages when the VM boots up.
I haven't yet figured this out my hosts still randomly reboot and they reboot more often the closer I max out a GPU card with assignments I found. I will defiantly follow the above to see if it helps me out my plan will be to:
Delete all my linked clones and remove the GPU from the main image.
Put all my hosts into maintenance mode and then reboot
Uninstall GPU driver the way you mentioned and shutdown VM
Add GPU back to main VM image startup and then install 18.Q3.1 Driver and reboot
Snapshot and redeploy main image to all hosts.
