This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed- artful' to 'verification-done-artful'. If the problem still exists, change the tag 'verification-needed-artful' to 'verification-failed- artful'.
If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed.

This results in the efifb not being activated at boot. On this platform, the same device will be initialized by the astdrmfb driver later in boot, so this isn't fatal, so the real SRU justification here is getting rid of the error message. It is possible that there are platforms where the efifb is behind a PCI bridge, and there is no accelerated alternative that will load later. This (theoretical) issue is most likely to impact d-i installs, where only a subset of fb drivers are included. [Test Case] dmesg | grep "failed to claim resource for efifb" [Regression Risk] The fix for this has been upstream since v4.14 with no known regressions. The driver is only used on EFI systems, which limits the risk to a subset of x86/ARM platforms. Regression tested on a Dell PowerEdge T610 (x86/UEFI). I have a test fix in ppa:dannf/efifb for regression testing.
