I haven't. If I got a response at all to "My monitor doesn't work" it
looks to me it would be: compile latest source with instrumentation
turned on and send log. I've tried compiling the Intel drivers before
- I could not get patches to apply.
Fortunately, others get the same backtrace:
It probably isn't related to my monitor not displaying, but I won't be
able to tell until 4.8, when the patch addressing that report is

My point is really the 4.4 kernel is nothing special for amd64.
Laptop's with Intel chipsets that started shipping over 6 months ago
don't work 100% with it. Actually from memory the Intel GPU driver
opps's on occasion in 4.4.
