Looked through the log files and didn't see a clue. And usually DP
tends to fail pretty noisily. So I think the bisect result would be
interestin. Meanwhile:
- do you have drm.debug=0xe dmesg for a working kernel, too?
- is the panel completely dead or is just the backlight on (or panel
on but backlight off)?
