There is a regression with my
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller : NVIDIA Corporation GF119 [NVS
310] [10de:107d] (rev a1)
where I would not get any graphics output anymore with Linux kernel
4.13.x, not even (framebuffer) text consoles.
There is a NULL pointer dereference around nvkm_dp_train_drive
visible in dmesg (attached)
and looking at the nouveau.ko disassembly, the faulting instruction was
a call to a variable address e.g. from
ior->func->dp.drive(ior, i, ocfg.pc, ocfg.dc,
which was introduced in commit af85389c614ae
so maybe you have a hint at what might be wrong or how to further debug
With 4.12.8, there was a different NULL pointer deref but some working
I also tried 4.14-rc3 or such but that still had broken graphics.
Thanks in advance for any help
I'm seeing the same problem on 4.13.11.
I have the same video card:
03:00.0 VGA compatible controller : NVIDIA Corporation GF119 [NVS 310] [10de:107d] (rev a1)
And a NULL pointer dereference:

I think I have the same issue with the mobile version of that card:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF119M [Quadro NVS 4200M] (rev a1)
It is an optimus setup, so the nvidia card is only used when I plug in a monitor into the DisplayPort.
I compiled the kernel with commit af85389c614ae04970c0eea7a5c50fb889c8a480 and its parent.
With the parent, there were no error messages from the kernel, but the output was static and full of glitches. With the mentioned commit, there were error messages from the kernel and no output at all.
I attached the kernel log (with kernel version 4.13.11) and the dmesg output after plugging in a monitor into the Displayport (kernel compiled from commit af85389c614ae).

dmesg after plugging monitor in
This patch should fix the issue:
I can confirm that this patch fixes the issue:
I tested this patch and I can confirm that it fixed the issue.
The patch in Comment 6 has been in Linus' tree since 4.15-rc8, and I have just requested that it should be applied to 4.14 as well.
