  DisplayPort hotplugging is not detected on a ThinkPad X220

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Steps to reproduce:
  1. Get a Lenovo ThinkPad X220 with Intel graphics (PCI ID 8086:0126, rev 09)
  2. Get a DisplayPort -> DVI cable, plug the DVI end into a monitor (Samsung SyncMaster 193p+)
  3. Plug the DP end into the ThinkPad

  What I expect:
  - hotplug is detected within a reasonable time, GNOME automatically extends my desktop

  What actually happens
  - nothing

  Things that work:
  - if I run 'xrandr' in an xterm, the monitor is detected instantly and GNOME reconfigures the screen.
  - if I open System Preferences -> Display, it does an xrandr probe behind my back and instantly detects/reconfigures the screen.
  - if I plug the DP cable before I open the laptop lid to wake it up from S3 sleep, the external monitor is detected.
  - if I use a VGA cable instead of the DP -> DVI one, hotplug is detected within seconds
  - if I *unplug* the DP cable, the unplug is detected instantly.
  - I once waited ~5 minutes without running xrandr, and it actually detected the monitor and reconfigured.
