Subject: [PATCH] [intel_iommu] Default to igfx_off
From: drago01 <drago01@gmail.com>
To: fedora-kernel-list <fedora-kernel-list@redhat.com>

This option seems to causes way to many issues, it is
being investigated by Intel's chipset team for months now and
we still don't have any outcome.

The results so far are "black screen when starting X",
"system hangs when using GL", "system does not resume".

The patch adds an intel_iommu=igfx_on option, which makes it opt in,
rather than opt out.
