Yes, first thing to try is to increase the tries.
Can you please point me to the bug and provide more details like platform, monitor, cable.
Are you referring to the same issue as Oleksandr reported where a single link dvi/hdmi cable didn’t work and dual link worked?

drm/i915: Check live status before reading edid
The regression was introduced as of v4.4-rc1.
I was hoping to get your feedback, since you are the patch author. Do think increasing the number of tries in intel_hdmi_detect() is worth trying? Do you think gathering any additional data will help diagnose this issue, or would it be best to submit a revert request?
