Title: w/dell TB16 Dock blanks the display

Status in fwupd package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Absolutely reproducible in Ubuntu 18.04.1 Gnome 3 UI with a Dell XP15
  laptop and a Dell TB16 dock.

  A few seconds after logging into the Gnome 3 UI, something in the UI
  starts the fwupd.service. About 2 seconds later, the display goes
  blank and does not come back. There is no obvious recovery short of
  killing all the user's processes, and then logging back in.  A second
  login does not reproduce the problem, since the fwupd service is now
  running, and does not restart. However manually restarting the fwupd
  service causes the problem to recur.

  The problem does not occur if the "dell" module is blacklisted in
