Actually I think I am wrong, I think they may be debug output
following the detection of a problem.  If you google for
intel_dump_pipe_config you will find quite a lot of recent discussion
about the problem, though I have not tracked down an actual bug.  Are
you also seeing a message about vblank timeout that is being discussed
along with the dump stuff?  It looks like it is currently being
addressed.  I don't think your problems are being ignored , I think
those looking at it (intel guys I think) have enough data of their own
to be looking at it.  You would not expect much action on the ubuntu
bug as it is nothing that the ubuntu team can do anything about, it is
the intel driver (I think).
