No, it DP 1.2 was disabled. If I enable it, it breaks things when I
try connecting via the MiniDP port (bypassing the dock), and it is
still broken when I try to talk via the DisplayPort in the dock.

If I disable DP 1.2 again, it works via the MiniDP port, but if I try
to connect through the dock (which has a DP Hub which I believe is
MST/DP 1.2 capable), it is still broken.

It does seem that this might be related to 3.17-rc3 trying to talk DP
1.2 if it is available, since I can't control what the DP hub in the
docking station advertises --- is there a commit or some kind of hack
I can try to force talking to the DP hub using DP 1.1?
