git bisect log

Fedora has gotten several reports of 100% failure to boot while docked (see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1549042 for example) as a regression between kernel versions 4.14 and 4.15. I bisected and came up with

    drm/i915/mst: Use MST sideband message transactions for dpms control
    Use the POWER_DOWN_PHY and POWER_UP_PHY sideband message transactions to
    set power states for downstream sinks. Apart from giving us the ability
    to set power state for individual sinks, this fixes the below test for
    $ xrandr --display :0 --output DP-2-2-8 --off
    $ xrandr --display :0 --output DP-2-2-1 --off
    $ xrandr --display :0 --output DP-2-2-8 --auto #Black screen
    $ xrandr --display :0 --output DP-2-2-1 --auto
    v2: Modify and document the dpms and port disable order (Ville)
        Add comment explaining is_mst = !crtc_state equivalence(Ville, Maarten)
    v3 by Jani: rebase

Also fails with drm-tip 2018y-03m-12d-22h-06m-53s

I can track down other reporters but my setup was Lenovo T470s with dock to HDMI monitor

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation HD Graphics 620 (rev 02)

Happy to provide more information and point other reporters here.
Comment 1 Dhinakaran Pandiyan 2018-03-13 16:51:11 UTC
Interesting, I wrote this as a fix for black screens that I was seeing with my Lenovo x260 + dock. Can you please attach dmesg with drm.debug=14?

output with drm.debug=14

The bug prevents the machine from booting all the way so I can't just collect the information normlaly but I did stop at a dracut shell.

Can you please check if this patch helps?
Comment 4 Dhinakaran Pandiyan 2018-03-14 05:43:43 UTC
Based on what I see on my laptop + dock:
If the lid was closed and bios sets up the external MST monitor, I see ddi_get_config() reading this hardware state as SST at boot. This results in ddi_post_disable() getting called instead mst_post_disable() when the pipe is disabled. Later mst_pre_enable() is unable to wake up the hub leading to link training failures.

Here's the patch I sent upstream https://patchwork.freedesktop.org/patch/210500/

If that doesn't work, let me know if the attached revert does.
Comment 6 Laura Abbott 2018-03-14 19:57:24 UTC
I replied to the thread but yes the fix does work for me.
Comment 7 Dhinakaran Pandiyan 2018-03-14 23:19:35 UTC
Great, thanks for reporting and the bisect.
Comment 8 Jani Nikula 2018-03-19 11:11:20 UTC
Thanks for the report and the fix, closing.
