[PATCH 7/7] drm/i915/guc: change default to using GuC submission if possible

This patch simply changes the default value of "enable_guc_submission"
from 0 (never) to -1 (auto). This means that GuC submission will be
used if the platform has a GuC, the GuC supports the request submission
protocol, and any required GuC firmwware was successfully loaded. If any
of these conditions are not met, the driver will fall back to using
execlist mode.
