    The point of the feature is to be invisible to applications, so if there is any apps not compatible with it that's a bug in the driver.
    this is most likely bug in the driver(unless it is forbidden call sequence according to documentation), but it shows that intel devs are not kde users, in other words kde users are less secure

    I've been seeing alot of kde black screen posts lately on kaby lake or higher hardware. Not sure what the deal is, but it's creating alot of 'linux sucks' threads.

    Either my Ivy Bridge have a rock solid driver, or these new Intel GPUs have really bad ones. Every time I see serious bug on the Intel driver is never something affecting me.
