Hmm, I never received your first mail.

Apparently audio on DP MST is problematic, and the debugging may get a
bit involved. Please file a bug at [1] so we don't clutter the lists
with logs etc. Please enable drm.debug=14 module parameter and attach
(to the bug) dmesg all the way from boot to trying audio on the monitor.
