sleep 1" to repeatedly turn on and off the panel (connected through i915
LVDS), it does not come back on after a while. The backlight comes on, but
the framebuffer is not displayed.
I probed the LVD_A_CLKM signal and saw that the "force on" would transition
it from 0V to 1V, but I would not see the clock oscillation that I usually
I do not have a differential probe to see the pretty picture with both CLKM
and CLKP, but I expect to see _something_. And this corresponds with my
Has this been reported before?
I dumped a bunch of i915 registers, but I do not see a significant
difference between "working" and "not working". Just some (undocumented, as
far as I can tell) sequential counter at 0x61100 and a scanline counter at
