[Bug 1567237] Re: Kernel 3.19.0-58 freezes Ubuntu 14.04 on Dell XPS 15 9530


*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 1552333 ***

However there is something that is very worrying about marking this bug
as duplicate of the one for 4.2 kernel: the other bug was marked as
medium importance because I always could use the 3.19 series of kernels
to get security patches. But now that the 3.19 series of kernels also
got broken, I am left with no good option to further get security
patches. I could downgrade to 3.16 series of kernels to see if that
series is still OK, but I do not want to do that. I would rather switch
to another operating system rather that downgrade my kernel lower than
3.19. That is why I do not agree that this bug will not be looked at and
the other one (for 4.2 kernels) is less important. Could you change this
the other way around: make the other bug a duplicate of this one and
keep this one opened with its higher importance and focus on this one? I
think that would make it also easier to figure out what got broken: by
looking at the changes between 3.19.0-51 kernel (which works) and
3.19.0-58 kernel (which doesn't) it should be easier to figure out what
is the problem than by comparing 3.19.0-51 kernel with a 4.2 kernel.

  Kernel 3.19.0-58 freezes Ubuntu 14.04 on Dell XPS 15 9530

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The latest security patch for  3.19.0 for Ubuntu 14.04 started
  freezing my laptop (Dell Inc. XPS 15 9530). All the patches before
  this one for the kernel 3.19.0 for Ubuntu 14.04 were OK. From log, the
  last message before freezing was "kernel: ...[drm] HPD interrupt storm
  detected on connector HDMI-A-1: switching from hotplug detection to
  polling", as you can see below:

  Apr 6 14:46:17 xxx-ubuntu dbus[1001]: [system] Activating service name='org.freedesktop.hostname1' (using servicehelper)

  Apr 6 15:07:35 xxx-ubuntu kernel: [ 2222.796696] [drm] HPD interrupt storm detected on connector HDMI-A-1: switching from hotplug detection to polling

  This is the same symptom as described in the bug
  https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1552333, which is
  a bug raised for 4.2 kernel running on Ubuntu 14.04 using the same
  laptop and the same Ubuntu installation as for this bug.

  At the moment I switched back to kernel 3.19.0-51 that does not cause this problem, but the possibility that from now on all future security patches for 3.19.0 might freeze my laptop sounds very bad.
