Aw, I didn't know that the depency goes this way round, the dp mst
patches (I'm not even sure which ones they are) on the i915 are just
on the general pile. So not anywhere near a place where I can make a
topic branch.

I guess what needs to be done now is a cherry-picked list of just the
patches we need, on top of -rc3, that I can then pull into
drm-intel.git plus send a pull request for that to Takashi. That means
the patches are twice in drm-intel.git, but if we cherry-pick
reference them correctly then that should be all ok and can't really
be helped.

Or we just delay the audio side for 4.12, dp mst audio support is 4
years late anyway, so one more release won'thurt that much ;-)
