Users of Intel laptops running Linux kernel version 5.19.12 started to they mention problems with a "flashing white light." One user even describes it very figuratively "the laptop screen starts flashing like lights at a 90's rave party".

Intel's Linux kernel engineer Ville Syrjal posted this week on mailing list: "After looking at some logs, we come up with potentially spurious power sequence delays, which can damage the LCD."

Greg Kroah-Hartman immediately released Linux 5.19.13 and the Intel graphics driver issues appear to be fixed.

Greg stated, “This release is to resolve a regression on some Intel graphics systems that had issues with 5.19.12. If you are not experiencing this issue with 5.19.12, you do not need to upgrade.”
