[PATCH 04/17] drm/i915: Compute the ELSP register location once

Similar to the issue with reading from the context status buffer,
see commit 26720ab97fea ("drm/i915: Move CSB MMIO reads out of the
execlists lock"), we frequently write to the ELSP register (4 writes per
interrupt) and know we hold the required spinlock and forcewake throughout.
We can further reduce the cost of writing these registers beyond the
I915_WRITE_FW() by precomputing the address of the ELSP register. We also
note that the subsequent read serves no purpose here, and are happy to
see it go.

v2: Address I915_WRITE mistakes in changelog
