Subject[bisected] offset display bug in i915
From
Date
Hi Chris,

The following patch that you recently committed breaks my ASUS Eee PC
1015PEM by causing the display to be offset by about 1 inch (a few
centimeters) when the mode is (re)set during boot. I previously posted
both photographs and video of the problem in another "PROBLEM" thread.

Here is the offending commit found through bisection:

219adae138513bae20b256f1946b9cb3b75ca05c is the first bad commit

drm/i915: Cache LVDS EDID

We assume that the panel is permenantly connected and that the EDID
data is consistent from boot, so simply cache the whole EDID for the
panel.

Signed-off-by: Chris Wilson <chris@chris-wilson.co.uk>

I'll look at the patch. Either the EDID is *not* consistent (in which
case, why are we not seeing other bugs like this?) or there is something
specific to this system or panel used.

Jon.
