[Intel-gfx] Sandy Bridge Desktop - 1920x1080i interlace not working

I tested with the patches applied. Xrandr shows the available interlaced modes automatically.
xrandr --output VGA1 --off
xrandr --output HDMI3 --mode 1920x1080 --rate 25
The television flickers. The lower part of the desktop is visible (lower menu with wastebin) in the upper left quadrant.
I start with VGA1 connected too, so that grub is shown in 1024x768 mode. During boot both flicker, which they didn't before. Both
show a desktop in 1024x768 correct. Changing HDMI3 to 1920x1080, the VGA1 stays in the 1024x768 mode, both flicker.
With the noveau driver (GTX275) I hadn't any side-effects.
I personally don't need a VGA1 connection, so I disconnected it for my test, see attached logs.
If screenshots are welcome, please tell me how.
Yi already mentioned that SandyBridge still has a problem, which I can confirm for my GT2+. Any patches for testing are welcome.

Applying: drm/i915: specify vertical timings in frame units for interlaced modes (gen3+)
Applying: drm/i915: allow interlaced mode output on the SDVO connector
Applying: drm/i915: allow interlaced mode output on the HDMI connector
