Meaning? MST works correcting when using the xorg mode setting driver, … so the kernel side should be ok, no?

How to move forward? Is the xorg intel driver despite missing releases under active development, or should I just use the lower performance mode setting driver?

Interested in any debug output? The display is a Dell UltraSharp 24″ 4K UP2414Q.
