The reports I received from customers were all on AST 2500 devices (on
Supermicro X11DPi-N, Supermicro X11DPH-T and Asus WS C621 Sage).

I was able to reproduce "the problem" on my old Asus Z6NA-D6 which has
either an AST 2050 device if I trust the board specifications on, or an AST 1100 if I trust /var/log/Xorg.0.log.

Note however that I am still not certain that the problem I am seeing
is the same as what both customers reported. It is possible that we
have 2 different issues.
