  [regression] Colour banding and artefacts appear system-wide on an
  Asus Zenbook UX303LA with Intel HD 4400 graphics

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  - Ubuntu 18.04 (with updates as of 14 Feb 2018).
  - Laptop: Asus Zenbook UX303
  - CPU: Intel i5 4210U
  - Graphics: Intel HD 4400

  Problem description: Colour artefacts and banding in all apps.
  Graphics, photos and videos display as though the colour range is
  improperly configured.

  See this photo of a 1080p video taken with a camera (poor quality, but
  illustrates the issue): https://ubuntucommunity.s3-us-

  Look at the sky’s light colours. They display with smooth gradients on
  Ubuntu 16.04, but as the photo illustrates 18.04 seems to display the
  video with a smaller range of white colours. This is the most apparent
  with either very dark or very light colours. Even on window titlebars
  the banding is visible (displayed as lines with different shades of

  Compared with a PrtSc shot of the same image:

  The artefacts are not present on PrtSc shots that are taken on Ubuntu
  18.04 but viewed on a different system (16.04 and Windows).

  Installing a previous kernel version fixes the issue completely. I
  used UKUU Update Utility to install kernel 4.4 (the same that I use in
  Ubuntu 16.04 without issues) and upon a reboot with 4.4 running on
  18.04 everything displayed smoothly. So this indicates that the system
  might be using a sub-optimal colour depth with the newer kernel?
