the following patch was just integrated into master: commit 7dfc8a5ebdf6b272de4373da945d756eadcf2786 Author: Arthur Heymans firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Fri Sep 2 22:35:32 2016 +0200
i945/gma.c: use linux code to calculate divisors
The code to compute n, m1, m2, p1 divisors is not correct in coreboot and on some targets hits a working mode at lower refresh rate, which is why display is working on some targets.
The divisors must be such "refclk * (5 * (m1 + 2) + (m2 + 2))/ (n + 2) / (p1 * p2)" is as close as possible to the target frequency (which is defined by the resolution and refresh rate).
This patch also fixes the reference frequency.
This patch reuses linux (4.1) code from drivers/gpu/drm/i915/intel_display.c to correctly compute divisors.
The result is that some previously not working displays, like many displays found on the Lenovo T60 might work now. Some examples of T60 displays that were known to not work (in payload): Samsung LTN141XA-L01 (14.1" 1024x768) LG-Philips LP150X09 (15.1" 1024x768) IDtech N150U3-L01 (15.1" 1600x1200) IDtech IAQX10N (15.1" 2048x1536) Samsung LTN154X3-L0A (15.4" 1280x800) LG-Philips LP150E06-A5K4 (15.1" 1400x1050)
Tested on T60 with 1024x786.
