[PATCH 04/32] drm/i915: Break i915_spin_request() if we see an interrupt

If an interrupt has been posted, and we were spinning on the active
seqno waiting for it to advance but it did not, then we can expect that
it will not see its advance in the immediate future and should call into
the irq-seqno barrier. We can stop spinning at this point, and leave the
difficulty of handling the coherency to the caller.
