On my muxed hybrid system (Lenovo IdeaPad U455) vga_switcheroo doesn't work as
expected. Initially after system booting both video cards are powered and the
IGD one is active. Then, when i try to switch active gpu with

 # echo DIS > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch

screen goes black.
The first bad commit, that broke vga_switcheroo is:
