I assume you meant "info", not "status". If so, that doesn't look all
that interesting:

  [torvalds at i5 linux]$ cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915_drpc_info
  HD boost: no
  Boost freq: 0
  HW control enabled: no
  SW control enabled: no
  Gated voltage change: no
  Starting frequency: P0
  Max P-state: P0
  Min P-state: P0
  RS1 VID: 0
  RS2 VID: 38
  Render standby enabled: yes
  [torvalds at i5 linux]$ cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915_cur_delayinfo
  Requested P-state: 0
  Requested VID: 0
  Current VID: 37
  Current P-state: 0

(This is in the "working state" - I rebooted because I can't stand
working with a machine that feels like a 110baud terminal).

I don't have this commit at all, it wasn't part of the merged series.
