    drm: Avoid the double clflush on the last cache line in drm_clflush_virt_range()

as we have observed issues with serialisation of the clflush operations
on Baytrail+ Atoms with partial updates. Applying the double flush on the
last cacheline forces that clflush to be ordered with respect to the
previous clflush, and the mfence then protects against prefetches crossing
the clflush boundary.

The same issue can be demonstrated in userspace with igt/gem_exec_flush.

Fixes: afcd950cafea6 (drm: Avoid the double clflush on the last cache...)
Testcase: igt/gem_concurrent_blit
Testcase: igt/gem_partial_pread_pwrite
