Ragged tearing along top 200 pixels with Intel HD5500 graphics

A video demonstrating the tearing
Description of problem:
I see visible, ragged tearing of the video (as if bunches of lines are updating at random) in the top 200 or so pixels of my display. The attached video shows this. (It's not an artefact of the recording, the video shows what it looks like to my eyes.)
This happens when I first log in, or lock the screen and then unlock it.
If I change to a text-mode VT and back, the tearing disappears.
The machine is a Lenovo C50-30 all-in-one, and I'm running the display at 1920x1080. The graphics is the Intel HD5500 that comes with the i5-5200U processor. There's also a Nvidia 820A on the board in an Optimus slave configuration, but to my knowledge it's not being used (and I've no intention of trying to do so, either).
dmesg and Xorg.0.log attached.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Lock screen, allow it to switch off.
2. Unlock screen.
3. Move a window around the top of the screen.

Booting with i915.enable_ips=0 seems to help.
Updating versions, still happens with:
As pointed out earlier, using i915.enable_ips=0 still helps but the tearing is still sometimes seen intermittently. Surrounding circumstances unknown, but typically after I've bumped the 'Activities' hot corner in GNOME Shell a few times.
I've also spotted another tear along the bottom of the GNOME Shell panel bar, so about 24 pixels down. This is visible in the ripples when the hot corner is activated -- ripples in the upper 24 pixels seem a frame or two behind the others. Also when dragging a window along the top of the screen (so just below the panel) there's a delay visible in the top pixels of the window decoration.
I think I've also seen similar on older HD3000 graphics on occasion...
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
