Are you sure? For me, 4.19-rc1 broke the TILER and it is fixed since 4.19-rc6.

And I have not seen any difference between 4.15 and 4.16 for display.

Just wait. Maybe, it is just one (missing?) patch which fixes audio for 4.19...

But beware: 4.15 has several bugs and missing features (e.g. charger, OTG mode, etc.)
that have been fixed between 4.16 and 4.19.

So it could happen that devs focus on and waste time fixing bugs a second time
in 4.15 that have already been fixed up to 4.19...

BR,
Nikolaus
