LOL, I have no idea. I know that some of the changes in 4.6.3 where reverted because everything was fixed in 4.7 but that means nothing. I went to the kernel archives and browsed on the 4.7 kernel to see the changes related to "DRM/i915" (I'm unsure this helps you at all, likely not):ikey wrote:For now we're sticking with the LTS kernel, and in future we'll allow the stable branch too. For now we could backport Skylake fixes to our 4.4.x if you canveloct wrote:I also wonder about the kernel, will there be the possibility of including more than one kernel? I ask because 4.6 and 4.7 have some additional skylake improvements that should hopefully help with those of us with newer hardware.
point me at the changes

I'll pastebin the results of my dmesg when i log in later this afternoon. Hopefully that'll provide some insight as to what is going on. Wish i had a little more knowledge to at least point you guys in the right direction.
