This one OEM system hangs immediately if a VGA monitor is plugged in. It also hangs if it's booted with the monitor already plugged in. Happens with current nightly as well.
I don't have any logs yet.

According to corresponding issue #1482038 in launchpad, it seems to use DP-VGA converter for connecting to VGA monitor, right?
This issue cannot be reproduced with drm-intel-nightly-2015/10/19 + Ubuntu 15.04 in SKL-U Intel CRB platform. Both extended and mirror modes work well.
Could you please tell me that VGA port is enabled by DP_to_VGA_converter or native VGA interface? Thanks!
Looks like you got that information already? I'm happy to keep this on LP for now until it's certain the driver is buggy and there are patches to try..
I don't have miniDP 1.2 port in CRB for test this issue again (only have DP-to-VGA v1.2 converter).
Do you have any device embedded with DP 1.2 port to test DP-to-VGA v1.2 converter for VGA monitor?
No I don't, but when my SKL-H worked the VGA output on it worked fine (with the new patches from August).
SKL-Y DVP3 has a miniDP port, dunno if it's 1.2 but it only came with a DP/DVI/HDMI dongle.

System hung when plug-in DP MST-enabled hub in Intel SKL-U CRB
I use DP 1.2 MST-supported HUB (Sunix IT DisplayPort to Dual Graphics Splitter) to test this issue in SKU-U Intel CRB, two DPs input, one miniDP output.
This DP MST hub works well in my win7 Lenovo X230NB via miniDP port.
But it also suffer from system hung in Ubuntu 15.04 with drm-intel-nightly-2015/10/19 when plug-in DP MST Hub to CRB's miniDP port.

Test purpose for disabling DP MST for DP HUB
Could help to give it a try and share the test result with us for reference? This is not final solution, and fix it further.
For provided patch, I forget to add checking code to let it be valid for SKY platform. sorry.
Correct description in #11.
For provided patch, I forgot to add checking code for SKY-U platform to let it be "only" disabled DP MST in SKY-U, but still supports it in other platform like BDW/BSW...etc.

[jpg] DP MST work well in Ubuntu with #13 patch
I verified this issue again by patch from #13, DP MST seems to work well in Ubuntu 15.04 with drm-intel-nightly-10/23, and have no idea why.
Please refer this picture.
For an additional remark on #14,
Without applying patch from #13, it still failed the test in Ubuntu 15.04 with drm-intel-nightly-10/23.
Do we have the exact manufacturer and model number for the DP->VGA solution that the customer is using? Are we sure it's a MST part?
They used Synaptics DP Hub VMM3320 as internal DP HUB to extend more VGA/DP ports
Thanks for the quick response. Can we verify that the customer is using the latest firmware available for the VMM3320? The latest release that I've been able to find is v3.8.0, A02.
Customer used the latest firmware for Window platforms, and I will also check its ODM.
It also happened this issue with Sunix IT DisplayPort to Dual Graphics Splitter, Black (DPD2001), please refer following link,
BTW, I don't have Dell DP MST monitor (only low-end AOC DP monitor). Do you have any Dell DP MST LCD for its reproduction? Thanks for your help!
it should be firmware v3.8 (refer following mst dump).

This is a very confusing thread. I'm trying to make sense of all the comments here. The description says that one OEM system hands if a VGA monitor is plugged in. Comment #1 says the issue can't be reproduced. (Note that we've been encountering poor quality DP->VGA dongles quite a bit this year)
Please provide a summary of the simplest configuration that demonstrates the error today. Can it be demonstrated with out the use of dongles or converter boxes? Can you connect from a DP port to two monitors in series? Does that work?
The status of DP MST and DP MST audio is being captured in the driver, but it is know that a number of Dave Airlie's patches are still in review. So, DP MST functionality is not complete.
Hi Paul (reply to #21),
Totally agree on you. The title of this issue is really confusing.
Customer reported it suffered from system hung when plug-in into VGA port originally in SKL-U platform, and didn't say how design of display in DUT.
After checking its internal display design of DUT, it uses one DP MST-enabled Hub (Synaptics DP Hub VMM3320) and one DP-to-VGA converter to extend theirs display port for 2 DPs and 2 VGAs.
For comment #1, I used DP-to-VGA converters (DP 1.1a & DP 1.2) to check it, they works well in my Intel SKL-U CRB.
For comment #7, I used DP 1.2 MST-enabled HUB (Sunix IT DisplayPort to Dual Graphics Splitter 1-input DP and 2 output DPs) to test this issue in SKL-U Intel CRB, i.e. using CRB's miniDP port connecting to DP MST Hub for DP MST on two DP monitors via that DP MST Hub. It suffered from the same issue in my Intel SKL-U CRB (dp training error from intel_mst_pre_enable_dp()/intel_dp_mst_compute_config()).
For comment #13 and #14, it seems to cause trouble between source MST link computation among DP source/branch/sink when enabling MST display (but aux works well). Then disable MST for SST between source and sink makes test (from #7 with one DP 1.2 monitor & one DP 1.1a monitor) working well with functionality of DP MST in Ubuntu 15.04 (but still not try DP daisy chain and guess could be trouble due to lacking MST).
All of them were tested based on drm-intel-nightly-2015/10/19.
Thanks for the summary, Gary. I have assigned an engineer to set up a system and reproduce the problem. Which of the systems configurations listed in the previous comment do you want us to use for problem reproduction? Also, can you write up the procedure for demonstrating the issue?

Gary, Could you please get me the SHA for the first commit in the kernel source tree you are using?
It's also worth noting that this does seem to be SKL specific. I was able to use the configuration that fails on SKL on my HSW dev system using the same kernel and it worked fine.
It seems to be necessary adding DDI PLL mapping in intel_mst_pre_enable_dp method (please refer http://lxr.free-electrons.com/source/drivers/gpu/drm/i915/intel_dp_mst.c#L188).
But it still got failed after I wrote DPLL_CTRL2 with corresponding port for it, and need to check it in related spec further, upset.

I tried to fix something along those lines for SKL:

debug dmesg with Ville's patch
I built a kernel based on current drm-intel-next-fixes plus the one from Ville, but it still doesnt' work right, dmesg attached.
Probably should've said what does happen; the monitor stays blank, system does not hang. And actually 4.3 was tested too, it didn't hang either.. dunno why not.
The system doesn't hang because the clock is being set right for the port being used for MST with the patch in place. We still seem to have a problem with link training, which is why you are not seeing any monitor output. I'm hoping to get together with one of my colleagues today and use a DP protocol analyzer to see if we can figure out what is going on. There isn't a lot of visibility into the link training process from software, unfortunately.
I wonder if this is a dupe of
which is fixed now.
I get a 404 from the link above, but would love to have more info on this.
Yes, it's the private bug that made me file this here, but the kernel that was last tested is what produced the dmesg from comment #29 here. So the hang is fixed but monitor stays blank as mentioned.

drm/i915: Fix SKL i_boost level
I verified patches from #37 again (by drm-intel-nightly: 2015-11-18-19h-48m-48s). The DP port was in connected & enabled, but corresponding screen was still blank. Thanks!
I was reading into Skylake support for MST and stumbled into this bug report. The issue you are describing with the blank screen is something I have heard before during my search, I posted all the info I could find here:
It contains links to 2 different situations:
- one nvidia user reported that his second screen stayed blank (power saving mode). After his screen saver switched on and he used the computer *both* screens came on and the issue was gone until next reboot.
- an AMD Radeon user mentioned both his screens went into power saving mode *after* logging in, while these were working before the login.
And now I read about your screen also going in power saving mode, so I am just wondering if these situations all have something in common.
Perhaps you could try the work-around in this link to see if that solves the blank screen problem:
DP MST is not POR on SKL
Please try current v4.6-rc kernels or, if that fails, drm-intel-nightly branch of http://cgit.freedesktop.org/drm-intel
I verified this issue again by drm-intel-nightly 4/25, this issue went away. Switching display combination of internal/external/mirror/extended modes with DP-MST enabled HUB didn't get fail-rate.
Could you help to verify it and share test result with us? Thanks!!!
QA, please re-test

I take this as fixed, whatever the GUI does or fails to do is out of our hands.
Please reopen if the problem persists with nightly.
Feel free to reopen if needed.
