    Add drm.debug=0xe to your boot commandline and compare if there is any
    difference between a successful cold boot, a broken cold boot and a warm
    boot. Similarly, comparing the output of intel_reg_dumper after each
    should yield a few clues as to what stage in the boot process we fail.
