my oldish Thinkpad X301 only wanted to show a blank screen in v4.5-rc1.
Bisecting resulted in:

HEAD is now at 39bfcd5235e0 drm/i915: more virtual south bridge detection
39bfcd5235e07e95ad3e70eab8e0b85db181de9e is the first bad commit

    drm/i915: more virtual south bridge detection
    Commit "30c964a drm/i915: Detect virtual south bridge" detects and
    handles the southbridge emulated by vmware esx.  Add the ich9 south
    bridge emulated by 'qemu -M q35'.

I have confirmed tha reverting this commit on top of v4.5-rc1 fixes the
problem.  And looking into the details, I believe this makes sense.  The
patch does this (where id is a 0xff00 masked device ID):

FWIW, the very real ISA bridge of my laptop matches the above:

This is a GM45 chipset.  I believe most chipsets of this generation use
29xx device IDs for the ISA bridge.  For example the P35:

You cannot assume all these are virtual systems. There are still crazy
people out there using the real thing :)
