>(intel_mmio_flip_work). The BUG below is now the dominant one:

|BUG: sleeping function called from invalid context at kernel/locking/rtmutex.c:917

I have to admit, the i915 tries very hard to avoid running on -RT. Could
you try the s/local_irq_disable();/local_irq_disable_nort();/ patch
mentioned in the thread?

Anyone of the i915 hackers an idea how could get the i915 working
without disabling interrupts? Is really required?
