When a 50ms delay happens on KBL-Y and KBL-U between these two register writes, the system hard hangs with a corrupted display (see attachments). 100ms reproduces even more frequently.

This has been reproduced on a variety of KBL-Y and KBL-U SKUs, and with both coreboot firmware and UEFI version KBLSE2R1. R00. X094. P02. 1706220744 on a KBL-Y RVP.
This was reproduced with chromeos-4.14 https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromiumos/third_party/kernel/+/9325afcd11534271/drivers/gpu/drm/i915/ and linux stable 4.15.1 tag
This is reproduced with maxcpus=1.
Hardware video decoder is required to reproduce the issue.
Sysrq does not work after system freeze. ITP halt() fails to stop the CPUS.
The first reports came from a ChromeOS autotest which does the following:
1. Login as a test account
2. Play a vp9 or vp8 video for 10secs
3. restart ui (roughly equivalent to “service mydisplaymanager restart”)
Of course this test was initially not run with a mdelay() added in the kernel - which is why reproduction was extremely rare. It took weeks to narrow down the issue to that specific delay.
To reproduce the issue manually (without running autotest) execute the below steps
1) Play any video in 1080p from crosvideo.appspot.com
2) Monitor the i915_display_info to make sure the overlay plane is active.
3) Once overlay plane is active move the cursor on top of the overlay plane. This disables the overlay plane.
4) When the overlay plane is disabled the system freezes.
