Subject: PROBLEM: Asus C201 video mode problems on HDMI hotplug (regression)


On my Asus C201 laptop (rk3288) the HDMI has been behaving weirdly after
Linux upgrade.

~50% of the time after a hotplug, there is a vertical pink bar on the
left of the display area and audio is not working at all.  According to
the sink device the display size is 1282x720 which seems pretty wrong
(normal and working situation is 1280x720).

I posted photos of non-working versus working states here:

Unplugging and plugging the cable again will correct the issue (it seems
to, for the most part, alternate between working and not-working states,
although not always).  It always works on power up with the cable initially

This is a regression from 4.11, where hotplug works perfectly every time.

I attached dmesg output (gzipped) from 4.14-rc7 (I booted up and
re-plugged the cable twice, which triggered non-working state and then
back to working state -- although seems no messages are logged from
these hotplugs).

I am working to bisect this, might take a while.  Partial progress

Let me know of anything else I should try.
