This doesn't prevent us returning an error should the wait-rendering abort
due to a GPU hang occurring in the middle of the wait.
i915_gem_object_pin_to_display_plane is used for more than just the
scanout, cursors and overlay are also included, otherwise we could just
ignore any errors. So,
/* Update the display engine regardless of any GPU hangs */
if (ret == -ERESTARTSYS)
