SubjectRe: [PATCH] drm/i915: Fix legacy gamma lut updates in Linux 4.7-rc6
From
Date
Ok, so legacy gamma table updates are completely broken for Intel on 
Linux-4.7-rc7, the final release candidate.

The good news is that applying Lionel's patch

"drm/i915: add missing condition for committing planes on crtc"

from

https://patchwork.freedesktop.org/patch/89111/

fixes it nicely. The patch currently applies cleanly to drm-fixes and
drm-next and is

Reviewed-and-tested-by: Mario Kleiner <mario.kleiner.de@gmail.com>


When we are at it, could somebody please look at that updated series of
my Displayport color depth fixes ("EDID/DP fixes for proper bpc
detection of displays.") i sent out a week ago?

Especially pulling patch 2/5 "[PATCH 2/5] drm/i915/dp: Revert
"drm/i915/dp: fall back to 18 bpp when sink capability is unknown" would
be important, as that bug introduced a regression for Intel + DP +
legacy DP converters into stable kernels which is very serious for users
of scientific/medical display equipment, especially as the failures can
easily go unnoticed during normal equipment tests, but would introduce
the equivalent of "silent data corruption" into their measured
scientific data, which is not a great experience given that collecting
such data can easily take half a year of work time and ten-thousands of
euros of wasted research funding.

Patches 3 and 4 contain changes Daniel asked me to do, patch 5 would be
good to safe-guard against similar issues in the future.

thanks,
