  8086:0f31 Ubuntu 15.04-15.10 freezes totally

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  Ever since I first installed 15.04 back in April/May on my new DELL
  Inspiron 3646:

  Handle 0x0001, DMI type 1, 27 bytes
  System Information
          Manufacturer: Dell Inc.
          Product Name: Inspiron 3646

  I have experienced frequent(daily/every-other-day)complete
  lockups(cannot even switch to console(Alt-F1,F2,etc.).

  I have determined that the issue is related to the 'i915' driver in
  relation to my GPU:

  00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Atom Processor
  Z36xxx/Z37xxx Series Graphics & Display (rev 0e)

  on SoC:

  Handle 0x0004, DMI type 4, 42 bytes
  Processor Information
          Socket Designation: CPU 1
          Type: Central Processor
          Family: Atom
          Manufacturer: Intel(R) Corporation
          Version: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU  J2900  @ 2.41GHz

  I have gained _significant_ improvements in reliability / stability by
  using various flags / parameters in the i915 module:


  options i915 semaphores=1

  and / or


  GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet intel_pstate=disable"

  and / or


  Section "Device"
     Identifier "Intel Graphics"
     Driver "intel"
     Option "TearFree" "1"

  and / or

  Disable "Intel Virtualization Technologies" in the BIOS.

  with similar results(maybe a little better than the stock i915 stack
  in 15.04).
