[RFC 1/5] drm/i915: Give our log messages our name

From: Tvrtko Ursulin <tvrtko.ursulin at intel.com>

Define DRM_NAME to i915 so that the log messages we output change from:

 [drm] RC6 on


 [i915] RC6 on

Since I wasn't around in the beginning of DRM I wonder whether that
was the intended purpose of DRM_NAME or if it was something else.

Today it looks a bit messy with it being used by both macros and core
DRM helpers, like drm_dev_printk and drm_printk, meaning that this
change only affects some and not all log messages.

Following patches will try to correct that as well.
