|As noted in this thread some people (a.k.a. me) are having the error
|vgaarb: this pci device is not a vga device |
popping up in dmesg (kernel 4.9).
As pointed out by firasuke in the said thread, this was an old bug (https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=63641) whose patch was applied back in the kernel-3.10 version (2012). Is it expected for this bug to be back?
firasuke seem to have found the commit in which the change was rolled back: 1cc0c998fdf2cb665d625fb565a0d6db5c81c639
[Moderator edit: changed raw git commit ID into a link to kernel.org Gitweb page for that commit, so that readers can review it without a local kernel checkout. -Hu]
