Meaning, do you have a specific bug report to reference? Afterall, users
on this list may not have a clue as to what issues you are having with
i915 & certainly may not bother to go hunting for them if you can't
provide specifics. You mention " i915 GPU hung error" but provide no
additional information. Then you complain about a sound issue - it "i915
GPU hung error" related to a sound or graphics (GPU) issue?

If I go looking for:

I only find posts by you referencing this thread. That's helpful eh?
