OK.  I'll be sending a bunch of fixes Linuswards in an hour or two.  
Should I include this?

Subject: drivers/gpu/drm/i915/i915_irq.c:i915_error_object_create(): use correct kmap-atomic slot
From: Andrew Morton <akpm at linux-foundation.org>

i915_error_object_create() is called from the timer interrupt and hence
can corrupt the KM_USER0 slot.  Use KM_IRQ0 instead.
