  Kernel 4.2 does not detect external monitor

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  On xubuntu 15.10.

  Kernel version 4.2.0-18-generic x86_64 does not detect an external
  monitor when it is connected via the minidisplay port. Using xrandr, I
  can force output to the monitor, but the maximum resolution is
  1024x768 (I think). Hardware is a Dell XPS 13.

  Upgrading to the mainline kernel in the 4.3 version stream eliminates
  the problem.
