My Lenovo X201s shows the same symptoms with v4.1.0-rc1, and your patch
seems to help.

Another detail: The flickering only happens when both outputs are
active, using xrandr to disable one output makes the other one working
fine, again.

I don't have synergy installed, so this can't be a strict requirement
for triggering the bug.
