I know I sound like a broken record but I really wish you i915 devs were
little more eager to revert broken patches early rather than late. I mean,
this particular breakage was already bisected but nobody said or
did anything - and it's not like it's the first time either!

I suppose I need to bribe Linus somehow to be more strict with you folks.
