Default linux 3.5 and resolution EDID problem

Hello all,

After upgrading to linux-3.5.2, my monitor lost its highest resolution of
1360x768 and went to 1024x768 instead.

Downgrading to linux-3.4.9 fixed the issue for the moment.

There are some problems reported with linux-3.5-rc4, such as
http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/dri-devel/2012-June/024455.html.

My desktop has Intel Corporation 82G33/G31 Express Integrated Graphics
controller, which uses i915 module. and I am still experiencing the problem.

However unlike the thread on arch
forums(https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1153026), I am not
experiencing any display corruption.

Anything I can do to fix the problem with linux-3.5?

Thanks

Sorry for the typo in the port, I was using 3.5.3 only

shridhar@bheem ~$ ls /var/cache/pacman/pkg|grep linux|grep 3.5
linux-3.5.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
linux-api-headers-3.5.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
linux-headers-3.5.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

It's an already reported bug, fix has landed in 3.6-rc3. See [ 0 ] for
more info on the bug and patches to fix it. It will solve the display
issue but you'll still see EDID reporting on dmesg

PS: One of the patches will fail to apply because there is now a
comment block between two instructions on the
drivers/gpu/drm/i915/intel_crt.c file , so you could get the patch
edited to work with 3.5 on my github at [ 1 ] and [ 2 ] for the two
patches you need to apply

[ 0 ] https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=45881

[ 1 ] https://github.com/alferpal/linux-zen/blob/master/0001-drm-i915-extract-connector-update-from-intel_ddc_get.patch

[ 2 ] https://github.com/alferpal/linux-zen/blob/master/0002-drm-i915-fall-back-to-bit-banging-if-GMBUS-fails-in-.patch

Hope it helps

Absolutely. I don't have a problem running 3.4.9 and good to know that the
issue is resolved.

Thanks
