Comment 3 Tõnu Raitviir 2010-12-23 01:43:49 UTC
I took some time and bisected this.

da79de97d254145dcb7c08c978b1093eac15ec9c is the first bad commit
commit da79de97d254145dcb7c08c978b1093eac15ec9c
Author: Chris Wilson <chris@chris-wilson.co.uk>
Date:   Mon Nov 22 11:12:46 2010 +0000

    drm/i915/sdvo: Only enable HDMI encodings only if the commandset is supported
    
    As we conflated intel_sdvo->is_hdmi with both having HDMI support on the
    ADD along with having HDMI support on the monitor, we would attempt to
    use HDMI encodings even if the interface did not support those commands.

2.6.37-rc7 minus this commit works fine.
That's on Asus P5E-VM HDMI motherboard (G35 chipset) with only HDMI output connected. Display is a Philips TV which so far has worked with 1920x1080 mode and audio over HDMI.

Add properties after initing connector

Ah, the bug is obvious in hindsight. Thanks for the bisection.
