Yes, the gfx corruption look similar. So I bet it is the same issue as in [1].


It is also the same kind of corruptions as shown in

[Bug 177701] warning in intel_dp_aux_transfer
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=177701

Just compare

https://bugzilla.kernel.org/attachment.cgi?id=241801

with 

https://martin-steigerwald.de/tmp/display-issues-with-kernel-4.9-rc4.png


However that bug report links to

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=97344

yet the patch mentioned in there does not fix the issue. So I wonder whether 
bug #97344 and bug #177701 are really the same.

As #177701 seem to have the same corruptions, yet I do not have any

merkaba:~#1> zgrep intel_dp_aux_transfer /var/log/kern.log*
merkaba:~#1>

Of course I can report a bug at fdo as well, but I am a bit confused whether 
it may not already have been reported. Well I hope I get a chance to report it 
there as well and you get to decide.

Thank you,
Martin
