Hi Sasha,
Today's hyperv/linux.git's hyperv-next branch's top commit is
48b72a2697d5 ("hv_netvsc: Add the support of hibernation").

Please pick up two patches from Wei Hu:
#1: [PATCH v4] video: hyperv: hyperv_fb: Obtain screen resolution from Hyper-V host
#2: [PATHC v6] video: hyperv: hyperv_fb: Support deferred IO for Hyper-V frame buffer driver

I can apply the 2 patches on the hyperv-next branch (the top commit is 48b72a2697d5):
