[PATCH] drm/amdgpu: refuse to reserve io mem for split VRAM buffers

From: Nicolai Hähnle <nicolai.haehnle at amd.com>

When the fast blit path fails while attempting to move a buffer from RAM
to VRAM, we fall back to a CPU-based memcpy that cannot handle split VRAM
buffers. Instead of crashing, simply fail the buffer move.

Ideally, we would teach TTM about split buffers so that the fallback still
works in this case, but that is quite involved. So for now, apply the
simplest possible fix.

I ran into this bug during testing. Unfortunately it does not fix the
memory corruption bug that I mentioned elsewhere... oh well.
