Looks we brought more problem with VGA mode disable than it has fixed...
and sr bit setting should only apply to affected chip, which is a G43 as we
originally saw this.

So how about following patch? Does it work for you? I would try to test this
on origin problematic G43 when I had hands no it, and current kms patch for this
on drm-intel-next needs rework too, and I'll test if sr bit affects on new chip
or not.
