At my wits end on this bug. My bisecting have proven useless and I wanted to get some help from you guys. Several reverted regressions reproduce the same behavior along the way and I have spent hours sifting and booting to see where it's at.
The short of it is that the monitor in my HP laptop boots to a 640x480 modeline on mainline kernels newer than 4.17-rc3.
Would not be a colossal problem, as I can just force a working modeline from userspace, if it didn't mean without the modeset the bridge utterly scrambles the display by lining up 640x480 as a wrapping 2D length in the very top of my screen as a jumble of colors.
The issue is GPU independent but is AMD related. Both W7170M and WX7100 affected.
Somewhere after kernel 4.17-rc3 the the rodeo begins.
My dmesg is probably going to be much much more helpful when it comes to debugging and I will GLADLY test any kernel patches if you need more info & detailed kernel/ custom dmesg dumps.
