Gentle reader,


the GPU malfunction caused by drm-kmp-default persists even with the
most recent kernel:

The Leap kernel version doesn't matter much regarding this problem
since the GPU driver function is provided by drm-kmp, not by the
kernel. On Leap, kABI is kept compatible, thus the KMP is keep linked
to the newer kernel. So the question is whether the newer updated
drm-kmp works better or not.

But, from the given bug reports so far, 4.9.x kernel doesn't seem
working better than 4.4.x for older Intel chips, unfortunately.
You can keep drm-kmp uninstalled on such platforms by simply adding
zypper lock. That's the very advantage of upgrading the stuff via
KMP, after all. You can easily roll back to the previous stable
state as of SP2.
