Furthermore, I checked out drm-intel.git (v4.6-rc6-962-g91567024d358
"drm-intel-nightly: 2016y-05m-06d-14h-29m-58s UTC integration manifest")
and applied "git diff v4.6-rc6..." on top of v4.6-rc6.

I booted the result once with default i915.enable_fbc, i.e. FBC enabled,
performed the test which Daniel asked for (I will post the results in
another message), then started X11.
- The good news: I was able to switch back and forth between the sddm
greeter screen on tty7, the text consoles at tty1...6, and the logger
at tty12 --- without getting any FIFO underrun messages and without
getting stuck with a blank screen.
- The bad news: Less than a minute after login into sddm, just after
having started openbox + lxpanel + konsole, the kernel froze again
without netconsole output.

I am now on 4.6.0-rc6+intel-drm-nightly with i915.enable_fbc=0. This is
running fine so far. (uptime is just 30 minutes now though, so that
doesn't say a lot.) Again, switching between ttys works without FIFO
underruns, unlike plain v4.6-rc6. Not sure if it is coincidence or if
this is because somebody fixed something.

Like v4.6-rc6 and older,4.6.0-rc6+intel-drm-nightly still exhibits the
following behaviour: If I switch the displayport connected monitor off
and on again, the following messages are logged when the monitor comes on:
[drm:intel_set_cpu_fifo_underrun_reporting] *ERROR* uncleared fifo underrun on pipe A
[drm:intel_cpu_fifo_underrun_irq_handler] *ERROR* CPU pipe A FIFO underrun
Other than these messages, there is nothing extraordinary going on.
