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.

This is really the wrong place. You want to be reaching out to the i915 developers at : dri-de...@lists.freedesktop.org

It's not insisting you upgrade UEFI, it's attempting to say "Your BIOS has mis-programmed the GPU. Maybe if you are lucky your vendor might have a newer BIOS that does not do dumb stuff, so try upgrading".

My overall experience with this has been that in general the Windows drivers don't care about the issue or else the BIOS would not have made release, so your chances of a viable update are slim to none. Approach the guys who actually write the driver and give them some useful information to work with, and you might be pleasantly surprised with a workaround or fix.
