maxadamo, thank you for reporting this and helping make Ubuntu better. Could you please test the latest upstream kernel available from the very top line at the top of the page (the release names are irrelevant for testing, and please do not test the daily folder) following ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue.

If the test did not allow you to test to the issue (ex. you couldn't boot into the OS) please make a comment in your report about this, and continue to test the next most recent kernel version until you can test to the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon, next to the word Tags, located at the bottom of the report description:

Where XY and Z are numbers corresponding to the kernel version.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results.

Thank you for your understanding.

I've tried 3.19.3-031903 and the problem is fixed (also added the tag as per your request).
You may ask me to download all the version to check which is the first one that fix... is this something I really need to do (please no :) )

tags: added: kernel-fixed-upstream-3.19.3-031903

maxadamo, the next step is to fully reverse commit bisect from kernel 3.19 to 3.19.3 in order to identify the last bad commit, followed immediately by the first good one. Once this commit has been identified, then it may be reviewed as a candidate for backporting into your release. Could you please do this following ?

Please note, finding adjacent kernel versions is not fully commit bisecting.

Thank you for your understanding.

How does it break it; do you still see the audio output but get no sound, or see no output in sound settings? Mind booting with 'drm.debug=0x6' and attach output of dmesg here.

Fwiw, 4.0-rc1 shows the device but no audio, and the device is gone after a S3 cycle. Not even 4.0-rc7 gives audio through hdmi though the S3 issue is fixed.

(later on) I will add the 'drm.debug=0x6' and attach the dmesg.
I got it working with 3.19.3, and I would also like to try 3.19.1 and 3.19.2
