  No audio over DisplayPort MST

Status in linux-lts-vivid package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have a Lenovo ThinkPad E540 with an Intel Haswell (4th Gen) HD
  graphics controller connected to a OneLink Pro Dock. The Dock uses
  DisplayPort (DP) 1.2 MST (multi stream transport) to provide both a DP
  and a DVI port. My monitor is connected to the DP.

  When I used kernels <= 3.16 audio worked fine, but the monitor would
  flicker heavily. So I installed linux-lts-vivid (3.19) which fixed the
  graphics problem (now I can see various DP? outputs in xrandr as
  opposed to one before), but there is no DP audio output to chose

  I also tested the latest mainline kernel 4.1-rc8, where this bug still
  exists. To further investigate I got these version's kernel sources,
  applied 4 patches by Dave Airlie from the intel-gfx mailing list [1]
  and tested this build (4.1-rc8+), which fixed the problem! I can play
  sound over DP, the same way I can over HDMI or DP without MST.

  I hope it is possible to backport these changes!
