Screen is stuck grayscale with extreme graphical glitches on the right side. The system is fully updated. I have tried the Xorg testing branch as well and still have this issue.
See attached screenshot.

Had to use imgur as it wouldn't let me upload the image.

Current Intel driver works fine on the Lenovo Thinkpad T430 for the 1366x768 display resolution setting.
Check modelines setup.

I have pushed some EDID fixes to

Update the drm package of this repository and see if it helps.

I have Lenovo X220 (Sandy Bridge) with HD 3000 and the problem did not go away with driver/graphics/agpgart, driver/graphics/drm, and x11/library/libdrm of version 0.5.11-2018.0.0.67 from Aurélien, any ideas which setting might affect this?

Most likely your display panel is being misdetected due to wrong EDID from the vendor.
Can you attach /var/log/Xorg.0.log so that we can check the video mode selection?
With X230 models misdetection occurs for some panels, (un)fortuntely mine is corrected handled so I did not see anything coming...

I'll try to resume my work on the driver this summer but until then research and teaching take all my time...

Attaching couple of logs. Thanks for the hint!

Looked at EDID data from the display logged to Xorg.0.log via read-edid and it says, among other things:

EDID block does NOT conform to EDID 1.3!
        Missing name descriptor
        Missing monitor ranges
EDID block does not conform at all!
        Has 150994944 nonconformant extension block(s)

Run the command on Fedora 28 as well and the output was the same but those last two lines (junk from Xorg.0.log?).
