black screen with "drm/amd/display: Do not limit color depth to 8bpc" e03fd3f300f6184c1264186a4c815e93bf658abb >=4.18

some of the MacBookPro 14,3 users have been struggling with the black screen issue on their systems, I have been bisecting the kernel commits that came to v4.18-rc1 and found that the problem is gone when I revert this commit "drm/amd/display: Do not limit color depth to 8bpc" e03fd3f300f6184c1264186a4c815e93bf658abb
I presume that the driver cannot get the display_info.bpc from the screen so it defaults to COLOR_DEPTH_UNDEFINED causing the black screen.
Please let me know,
P.S. I have been sending an email to Harry Wentland & Alex Deucher on 18 Sept. 2018, but no response followed.
