This series hasn't seen any reviews or acks unfortunately.
Merging this would allow fdo #61115 to be closed
(currently assigned to intel-gfx).
FWIW this series has in the meantime been tested by more folks:
Tested-by: Pierre Moreau <pierre.morrow at free.fr>
[MBP 5,3 2009 nvidia MCP79 + G96 pre-retina 15"]
Tested-by: Paul Hordiienko <pvt.gord at gmail.com>
[MBP 6,2 2010 intel ILK + nvidia GT216 pre-retina 15"]
Tested-by: William Brown <william at blackhats.net.au>
[MBP 8,2 2011 intel SNB + amd turks pre-retina 15"]
Tested-by: Lukas Wunner <lukas at wunner.de>
[MBP 9,1 2012 intel IVB + nvidia GK107 pre-retina 15"]
On the latter three models it worked fine. On Pierre Moreau's machine
the discrete nvidia G96 locks up when woken. This happened in the past
as well but not on the first wake but only on the 10th or so. Since it
works fine on the GT216 and GK107, I'm guessing we've got a regression
in the wakeup code for the G96 which is somehow triggered by this patch
set (more specifically: triggered by being able to retrieve the proper
panel resolution and configure a crtc). It needs to be fixed but isn't
a showstopper for this series IMHO. (Arguably being able to retrieve
EDID but then locking up on switching isn't really worse than not being
able to retrieve EDID in the first place.)
