SubjectRe: [PATCH] drm/i915/opregion: work around buggy firmware that provides 8+ output devices
We have a new bug report that has the same problem:

The posted patch solves the problem. I know it's not perfect, but it
doesn't seem it would do any harm to existing systems so should be safe.

Better, if someone can shed some light on how this should be properly
handled, that would be great.
