Bug Description

This revert went into 3.16, it hasn't hit 3.13-stable yet (though it will).

http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=68986c9f0f4552c34c248501eb0c690553866d6e

Note that with *current* powerkvm, this will cause the console colors to be wrong (again), at least until
we release the service pack which will correctly fix the problem on KVM side. If you don't apply the above
revert, then the colors will be wrong with the new powerkvm..

We have to do the fix on our side otherwise X won't work properly. Additionally the "hack" that this reverts was never
going to work in a "pure" LE/LE environment so we have no choice but bite the bullet and do the right fix.

This bug is missing log files that will aid in diagnosing the problem. From a terminal window please run:

apport-collect 1333430

and then change the status of the bug to 'Confirmed'.

If, due to the nature of the issue you have encountered, you are unable to run this command, please add a comment stating that fact and change the bug status to 'Confirmed'.

This change has been made by an automated script, maintained by the Ubuntu Kernel Team.

Log aren't useful, this has to do with color artifacts on the screen. The problem has already been fully diagnosed and fixed upstream.

The offb fix worked, but something else broke ... USB keyboard doesn't
work anymore. Not sure what's up yet as I can't log into the guest, I'll
have to dig further.

Did you apply any other USB related change since -029 ?

Cheers,
Ben.
