Bug Description

== Oneiric SRU Justification ==

 This wil affect all users of Ivybridge on Oneiric when it releases.

 This patch fixes Ivy Bridge bringup on Oneiric after recent bios
 updates where gpu frequency scaling was enabled. It does not affect
 anything besides Ivy Bridge (covered by IS_GEN7, IS_GEN6 is sandybridge
 generation) in the code and has no way to regress other systems.
 Without this patch, i915 will fail to load like this

 [drm:init_status_page], render ring hws offset: 0x00000000
 [drm:init_ring_common] *ERROR* render ring initialization failed ctl 00000000 head 00000000 tail 00000000 start 00000000
 [drm:i915_driver_load] *ERROR* failed to init modeset

 vesafb will then load, and X will use the vesa driver with all kinds
 of corruption problems due to the partially initialized GPU. No public
 bug has been filed because it is unreleased hardware but it has been
 tested internally.

[Test Case]
 Boot to X on an Ivy Bridge system, which is not possible without this

[Regression Potential]
 None, this only affects generation 7 GPU's which are unreleased and
 covered by IS_GEN7 in the patch. No new code is added, only the
 enabling of already existing code used for Sandy Bridge on the newer

Thank you for taking the time to file a bug report on this issue.

However, given the number of bugs that the Kernel Team receives during any development cycle it is impossible for us to review them all. Therefore, we occasionally resort to using automated bots to request further testing. This is such a request.

We have noted that there is a newer version of the development kernel than the one you last tested when this issue was found. Please test again with the newer kernel and indicate in the bug if this issue still exists or not.

If the bug still exists, change the bug status from Incomplete to Confirmed. If the bug no longer exists, change the bug status from Incomplete to Fix Released.

If you want this bot to quit automatically requesting kernel tests, add a tag named: kernel-bot-stop-nagging.

 Thank you for your help, we really do appreciate it.
