  i915 stop working after linux 4.2.0-21-generic

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  After updating the linux kernel of my Ubuntu 15.10 from 4.2.0-21 to
  I was unable to get to XFCE and slim login manager, I was stuck on a black screen
  with nothing displayed (no text/graphics). Same issue with latest
  When I go back to  4.2.0-21 everything is working perfectly.

  So something is "broken" with i915 module starting and newer.

  After some research online, I managed to make it work even with kernel 4.2.25 
  by doing this vodoo magic magic. It's not clear what made it work ;-P
