I get a flood of kernel events from nouveau when connecting and disconnecting my 2nd display via the display port cable.

Events start with this:

nouveau E[   PDISP][0000:01:00.0] INVALID_VALUE [UNK84] chid 0 mthd 0x0700 data 0x00052002

modinfo nouveau -n

lspci -v | grep -i vga
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation G92GLM [Quadro FX 2800M] (rev a2) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

Errors come and go with connection/disconnection of the Display Port cable.  So long as I stay running in init 3, the primary laptop LCD continues to function.  Once I go init 5, X appears to start, and then just hangs.

I've attached dmesg output for boot-up, when I connect the display port, and when I disconnect the display port.

Please let me know if I can help in any way.

I should also add - I do not have this problem when running CentOS 7 - 3.10

Please attach your VBIOS as well (you can retrieve it from /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/vbios.rom )
