Description Carlos Soriano 2016-02-17 11:01:14 EST
Description of problem:

An external monitor was working fine using rawhide with kernel 4.3 on a optimus laptop with the external monitor output connected only to the nvidia card.

However with the kernel 4.5 in latest rawhide that stopped working.
xrandr doesn't detect the external monitor and it says that the HDMI is disconnected.
DRI_PRIME=1 glxgears works as expected.

Additional info:

The card is: GeForce GT 520M
OpenGL ES 3.0 Mesa 11.2.0-devel
Gallium 0.4 on NVD9

Can you please attach dmesg output from both the working and non working kernels?
