I have created an upstream bug report: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94250

The patches mentioned in the bugreport fix the problem for me. Can the Xenial version of the driver be updated, or the patches be backported?

I also have the same problem. There is a testing package I can install? Is it fixed in 16.04?

Cs-gon (cs-gon) wrote :

@Francis: As far I can tell this is not fixed in 16.04 yet. But you could try the xserver-xorg-video-intel package from the oibaf PPA, which follows the upstream git repo closely (i.e. nightly git snapshots), and should contain the relevant patches/commits.

You probably don't want all the other packages from the PPA, only the xserver-xorg-video-intel package, at least if you don't want to test the other things the PPA aims to provide, and want to keep the packages on your system as close to the official 16.04 versions as possible.

Ah, thanks!

Since I have my Thinkpad T450s last november, I'm running ubuntu 15.10 and I had random graphic crash when docking/undocking my laptop. I docked/undocked many times since the upgrade with this ppa and no crash since then!

This will be fixed in the 20160307 intel driver checkout that will be going into xenial shortly.

@Francis: This is another bug and you should open another bug report for that one.

That being said, I think I haven't seen that one using the Wily kernel (yet). But I have seen one, that is probably the same bug, using newer kernels (4.4/4.5). I have reported the bug against the 4.5.0 kernel on freedesktop.org. In my case the 4.5.0 kernel also crashed in drm_dp_payload_send_msg, but got there via the intel_mst_post_disable_dp call, instead of intel_mst_enable_dp call like in your case, but I think both crashes probably have the same root cause.

I have reported it here: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=94534

One of the developers, Chris Wilson, raised the bug priority to highest/blocker, so I hope this will get fixed soon, but there are no patches to test yet.

Yeah, I'm using kernel 4.5. I resolved another problem I had with the kernel 4.5 but seem like I got a new one :)
