Running kernel 4.3-rcX I can usually boot to a good nouveau session, however if I reboot the system the display is squashed and ghosted across the screen.
I have a capture of the kernel log showing a FIFO that has failed to reset. Rebooting again doesn't clear the error - nor does shutting down and starting again - I typically need to go and boot an older kernel ubuntu 3.13.0-58-generic in this case. I haven't tested shutting down the system for a prolonged period after the corruption yet.
Attached is the kernel log of
dmesg-4.3.0-rc1.txt (totally broken both screens)
dmesg-4.3.0-rc3.txt (totally broken both screens)
dmesg-4.3.0-rc3-onescreen-good.txt (totally broken on one screen)
Also note this error is readily replicated with one screen present - the laptop display. I'll attach a dump of that too.

How are the screens plugged in? Can you provide the dmesg when booted with
This looks like a non-optimus setup, is that right?
Yes, that's a non-optimus setup.
I'll get you that capture. Right now I have this weird artifact on my primary laptop screen that won't go away after booting the system a number of times @ the 4.3.0-rcX kernel - I'm assuming the system isn't actually resetting the nvidia when I power down (some sort of warm boot) - so I've disconnected the power and I'm letting the battery run flat.
I'm attaching a picture of the artifact that persisting through resets (note it's still there even after leaving the system powered off overnight)

Also useful to know if the issue happens with 4.2. The nouveau driver got basically rewritten in 4.3, a regression easily could have crept in.
Just to confirm.
1. First boot is normal
2. Issue a reboot
3. Get corrupted screen
4. Need to completely allow power to drain (so presumably there is some warm boot foolery going on here with the BIOS when I just do a power down)
Requested dmesg attached.
I'll compile a 4.2 tag and let you know.
