[Bug 1483320] Re: [BDW] VGA output regression on 4.2 (was: Migrate Broadwell to use i915_bpo)


Just wondered; will this make it in to the linux v3.19 stable repository
maintained by CKT or will it likely only get as far as the vivid kernel?

  [BDW] VGA output regression on 4.2 (was: Migrate Broadwell to use

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
Status in linux source package in Vivid:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  There are several bugs affecting Broadwell generation graphics in the
  vivid kernel (3.19), but not found in 4.2rc which i915_bpo module is
  based on. In order to support our OEM partners (and other BDW users)
  it would make sense to migrate BDW to use i915_bpo instead.

  The known (public) bugs this would fix are:

  - screen is black after xrandr rotate command

  - changing the VT causes flicker

  - GPU hangs on resume
  (and dupes, which I believe there are several of)

  - and some OEM machines can't always hotplug the HDMI output (no
  public bug AIUI)

  the migration should not be too risky, since i915_bpo is already used
  for Braswell which is same generation as (=based on) BDW.


  Track VGA output regression here, found in 4.2 and fixed upstream by
