Don't reject the fault on Intel for our driver bugs.

    5 **State:** Supported, but rough[[BR]]
    6 **Details:** Intel requires large code changes between generations and does a lot of manual register hammering. While Intel works on open source drivers, they're very mechanically focused on Linux with little attention to other operating systems. Documentation exists but feels automatically generated. With these factors, the Intel driver works inconsistently between generations.

     7**Details:** Intel requires some code changes between generations, to adjust for changes in the register map. Intel provides documentation and a Linux driver, but the hardware is somewhat complex especially in modern generations, with support for HDMI, DisplayPort, and high bandwidth displays. As a result, our driver lags behind the specs and works better with cards a few years old (currently SandyBridge and older are well supported, newer ones are a bit hit or miss).
