    Subject[git pull] more drm-fixes for rc6
    Hi Linus,

    Please pull the 'drm-fixes' branch from
    ssh:// drm-fixes

    One real bug fix, and two quite stupid errors that people think are bugs,
    because we report them.

    drm/i915: silence vblank warnings

    these errors are pretty pointless

    drm: silence pointless vblank warning.

    Some applications/hardware combinations are triggering the message "failed to
    acquire vblank counter" to be issued up to 20 times a second, which makes it
    both useless and dangerous, as this may hide other important messages.
    This changes makes it only appear when people are debugging.

    drm: When adding probed modes, preserve duplicate mode types

    The code which takes probed modes and adds them to a connector eliminates
    duplicate modes by comparing them using drm_mode_equal. That function
    doesn't consider the type bits, which means that any modes which differ only
    in the type field will be lost.

    One of the bits in the mode->type field is the DRM_MODE_TYPE_PREFERRED bit.
    If the mode with that bit is lost, then higher level code will not know
    which mode to select, causing a random mode to be used instead.

    This patch simply merges the two mode type bits together; that seems
    reasonable to me, but perhaps only a subset of the bits should be used? None
    of these can be user defined as they all come from looking at just the
