Kernel Patch for drivers/gpu/drm/i915/display/intel_dp.c

Every time I update the kernel on my DELL XPS-13-7390 Laptop, I have to apply this patch and recompile the kernel. I got this patch from the intel gfx team. If I don’t patch the kernel the screen of my DELL XPS-13-7390 Laptop has a permanent flickering.

Would it be possible to patch the LEAP 15.3 default kernel with this patch? That would make a kernel update much easier and people like me and other people with the same hardware would not have to patch and recompile the kernel after each kernel update.

You need to create a bug report to the kernel maintainers. If it’s been upstreamed then they can look at backporting the fix.
