Between 4.4-rc3 and 4.4-rc4, i915 modesetting broke on my i5-2400 PC. 
Instead of seeing the new dense graphics mode, I see the last VGA text 
lines and no X appears either.

I saw something similar on I865G but have not had time to check if it is 
the same issue.

ac9b8236551d1177fd07b56aef9b565d1864420d is the first bad commit

    drm/i915: Introduce a gmbus power domain
    Currently the gmbus code uses intel_aux_display_runtime_get/put in an
    effort to make sure the hardware is powered up sufficiently for gmbus.
    That function only takes the runtime PM reference which on VLV/CHV/BXT
    is not enough. We need the disp2d/pipe-a well on VLV/CHV and power well
    2 on BXT. So add a new power domnain for gmbus and kill off the now
    unused intel_aux_display_runtime_get/put. And change
    intel_hdmi_set_edid() to use the gmbus power domain too since that's all
    we need there.
    Also toss in a BUILD_BUG_ON() to catch problems if we run out of
    bits for power domains. We're already really close to the limit...
