A kernel error is requesting me to upgrade my HP Probook 4540s UEFI.
The error involves the i915 graphics driver. On another laptop, the
one on which I coded simple-netaid, i915 failed to turn on the
backlight for a whole year. However, at that time I found a workaround
using a kernel parameter. I wish I find another kernel parameter that
prevents the current error. Since DNG is read by many who may have
used kernel parameters to override sloppy firmware implementations, I
am posting here for some help.
The kernel "complains" as follows:
[ 7.471266] [drm] Wrong MCH_SSKPD value: 0x16040307
[ 7.471269] [drm] This can cause pipe underruns and display issues.
[ 7.471270] [drm] Please upgrade your BIOS to fix this.

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
