The kernel crash is related to an HDMI issue that we haven't been able
to reproduce on our development and validation devices so far but that's
not an excuse and we do need to figure it out. Things work e.g. fine
with the KBL Dell XPS13 but not on Linus' SKL Dell XPS13 device, so I'll
get one and will also work on additional devices remotely.
