[PATCH 38/57] drm/i915: Delay queuing hangcheck to wait-request

We can forgo queuing the hangcheck from the start of every request to
until we wait upon a request. This reduces the overhead of every
request, but may increase the latency of detecting a hang. Howeever, if
nothing every waits upon a hang, did it ever hang? It also improves the
robustness of the wait-request by ensuring that the hangchecker is
indeed running before we sleep indefinitely (and thereby ensuring that
we never actually sleep forever waiting for a dead GPU).
