Patch for i915 module load parameter to igore edp bpp value

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Patch against Linus' latest git, fixing bug 59841 reported at for the cases where
a quirk has not been added to the kernel for specific hardware.

At least one Intel HD Graphics 4000 PCI display controller hardware with PCI id 0x0166 appears to return an incorrect edp bpp value 18 instead of the correct 24. This patch allows user to set a flag at
module load time to ignore the incorrect edp bpp value.

Correction to previous patch notes: the edp bpp value returned is 18,
not 16 as erroneusly claimed in previous patch (quirking the feature).
