Thanks for your quick response.
Yes it is not easily be reproduced in native. In  iVGT we startup several VMs  simultaneously, it can be reproduced in several cycles, upon 1/10 fail rate.
Need to use GUI mode but not text mode to reproduce this issue.

BRs,
Weinan Li

Cool, thank you.
I dont believe I can easily reproduce it, it has only happend few times (and i reboot my lappy >2 times per day).

This shouldn't happen with 4.5, the fbdev is now clobbered if initialization
fails, the existing "if (dev_priv->fbdev)" checks should thus be sufficient.
See 54632abe8ca3 ("drm/i915: Fix oops caused by fbdev initialization
failure") as well as 366e39b4d2c5 ("drm/i915: Tear down fbdev if
initialization fails").

Gustav Fagerlind and Li Weinan both reported this for 4.3. It would be
interesting to know if it can be reproduced at all with 4.5-rc2.

Best regards,

Lukas
