Subject[patch 017/123] drm/i915: give up on 8xx lid status
2.6.33-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

-----------------

From: Jesse Barnes <jbarnes@virtuousgeek.org>

commit 7b9c5abee98c54f85bcc04bd4d7ec8d5094c73f4 upstream.

These old machines more often than not lie about their lid state. So
don't use it to detect LVDS presence, but leave the event handler to
deal with lid open/close, when we might need to reset the mode.

Fixes kernel bug #15248
