[PATCH] drm/selftests/mm: reduce per-function stack usage

The check_reserve_boundaries() function has a large array on the stack,
over 500 bytes. It gets inlined into __igt_reserve, which has multiple
other large structures as well but stayed just under the stack size
warning limit of 1024 bytes until one more member got added to struct
drm_mm_node, causing a warning:

drivers/gpu/drm/selftests/test-drm_mm.c:371:12: error:
stack frame size of 1032 bytes in function '__igt_reserve' [-Werror,-Wframe-larger-than=]

As far as I can tell, this is not nice but will not be called from
a context that is already low for the kernel stack, so just annotate
the inner function as noinline_for_stack to ensure that each function
by itself stays under the warning limit.
