  Graphics corruption (framebuffer offset) in i915 on 4.4.0

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Appeared after upgrading to 16.04 LTS. Mostly happens with switching
  channels in a full-screen irssi window by using Alt and the number
  keys (or the top row of the keyboard).

  Entire screen flickers between normal view, and a semi-arbitary offset
  view (with the entire screen offset by about 50-100 pixel, wrapping to
  the other side). Minor irritation to begin with.

  Eventually lead to the entire screen blanking save for a solid
  yellow/green line (about 5-10 px wide) on the left, occasionally (~1s)
  flicking back to the correct contents.

  Rebooting into 4.2.0 (left over from before the upgrade) appears to
  have fixed the issue.
