[Bug 1527829] Re: displayport MST external monitors don't return from sleep mode


Additional info: When in intended setup (two monitors on one DP) the
ASUS brand monitor flickers occasionally (not a nuisance)

- Connecting just the ASUS to the adapter (other HDMI port unpopulated) the monitor flickers repeatedly, indefinitely, often. This is regardless of which of the 2 ports it's on. I have attached verbose (drm.debug=0x05) kernel logs of this behavior
- Connecting just the samsung (second external monitor) to the adapter works fine, and when going to powersave using "xset dpms force off" monitor&panel stay off, although the external monitor doesn't come on after resume (topic issue), confirmed multiple times

So it seems like the ASUS is causing all monitors/panel to wake up ~15s
after display standby.

In the attached log, the monitor cycling on/off happens 5 times

  displayport MST external monitors don't return from sleep mode

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When displays go to sleep, upon return from sleep the two monitors
  attached to a belkin mini displayport to 2x HDMI, do not return from
  sleep. This results in part of the desktop being inaccessible, until
  the external displays are unplugged, and then plugged back in.

  Sometimes, Xorg will also back down to one monitor. The data
  accompanying this report is for an instance where the power save mode
  caused Xorg to drop to the primary monitor only.

  This is on Ubuntu 15.10 on a Dell XPS 13 (9333) with integrated intel
  HD 4400 graphics. There are two external monitors connected by HDMI to
  a belkin DP-MST adapter which connects to the mini-displayport. A
  single-HDMI-to-mini-displayport belkin adapter works as expected
  (coming out of power save).

    Installed: 2:2.99.917+git20150808-0ubuntu4

  Expected behavior: Displays go to sleep, and upon returning all
  displays are still present and all wake.
