These patches are in the 4.16-rcN already, no need to send them to cosmic.

On the machine of Lenovo M715, there is an AMD GPU (1022:15dd rev ca), when it
switchs to amdgpufb, the screen displays abnormally, we tested with a couple monitors,
all of them can reproduce this issue.

Backported 3 patches from mainline kernel, all of them focus on the change of
disable_vga(). After applying these 3 patches, the issue disappears.

[Test Case]
boot the system, run glxgears, everything works well

[Regression Potential]
Very low, these patches come from upstream, and I have tested them on at least 6 different
lenovo machines and those machines have different AMD GPUs on them, all of them worked
as well as before.
