Title:
  Errors:  flip_done timed out  during boot-up; slow boot

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  I had been running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on many laptop computers
  (especially Dell D620, D630, E6400) with no problem.

  I created a Live USB with Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS and tried it on a Dell
  D630.  It was very slow to boot up (about 90 seconds) as opposed to
  the 30-45 seconds it usually takes. For a few seconds there were error
  messages that included the phrase "flip_done timed out".

  When the Ubuntu desktop appeared, the mouse cursor hung for a while,
  but then came back to life. I didn't do much testing from there.  I
  did a Live session with the 16.04.2 LTS  on a different D630 laptop,
  and the same problem occureed.

  I Googled the problem, and found several hits.
  -----------------
  On an Arch forum, someone reported the problem on a Dell D630, like mine. It 
also occured on other laptops:
  https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=218581

  The suggestion was that the bug was related to kernel version 4.8.x
  and the 965GM chipset, which is what the D630 has.

  So I tried Ubuntu Mate 16.04.2 on a Dell D620 (with a 945GM chipset) and the 
problem DID NOT occur.
  -------------------
  For a similar boot-up problem, Ubuntu Forum suggested going back to an 
earlier version of Ubuntu.
  https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2348892

  I tried Ubuntu Mate 16.04.1 (with the 4.4.0-31-generic kernel), and
  the problem did NOT occur.

  So I'm solving the problem for myself by using Ubuntu Mate 16.04.1 LTS rather 
than 16.04.2.
