Description Dominic Lindsay 2015-03-31 17:36:44 UTC
Using any of the 4.0 kernels I get framebuffer corruption when switching tty or quitting X.
my dmesg output gives:

[drm:intel_cpu_fifo_underrun_irq_handler [i915]] *ERROR* CPU pipe A FIFO underrun

Some people running 3.19 are getting corruption when running multiple displays, with 'pipe B FIFO underrun'.

What does the corruption look like?  Can you attach a picture?  Also, I assume you didn't get this corruption on the last kernel, would it be possible to bisect to the failing commit?
Comment 2 Chris Wilson 2015-03-31 20:07:29 UTC
Please attach your dmesg so we know what hardware you have? Preferably with drm.debug=0x6 set on the kernel command line.

dmesg output after framebuffer corruption occurs.
Comment 4 Dominic Lindsay 2015-04-01 12:12:37 UTC
The corruption makes the writing 'spin' across the screen, from left to right. 
Sometimes I dont seem to be able to switch tty.

Its hard to get a pic since I cant screen cap. 

If you guys dont mind a phone picture I can upload that. I have attacked a .txt with my dmesg output plus the kernel params set.

I cant do a bisect today, as I would have to learn to do it, I simply don't have time to do it today.

When speaking to some people in IRC they say they get some corruption on their second display on kernel 3.19.
