What kind of a workaround are you talking about? Sorry, to me it all
looked like "UMS is being ignored forever". Anyway, let's move on to try
to solve the issue.

I can't tell whether this is correct, because intel gfx driver is
unknown to me, but from the first glance your description sounds reasonable.
I'm out of office till ~ next week's tuesday, and on return I'll try
to test it on the hardware in question.
