I don't follow why you think it's a different platform and how I might
have "more" definitely shown v4.1 to be good, but I'll trust your
judgement as a drm dev and not argue :).

Is the flip_done timeout on exit from Xorg a separate bug? That's one
of the symptoms.

The other symptom is GEM errors in dmesg followed by rcs0 gpu hangs
some time later.

In both cases the machine will be temporarily unresponsive or even
hang indefinitely.

I can't say when the bugs will be filed. Hopefully soon.

Sure, but it's important to note that the rcs0 hangs have been very
visible in 4.13 and, if included, better hidden in older kernels.
Meaning, it didn't appear as easily in older kernels for me to take
notice and report.
