[PATCH 03/36] drm/i915: Keep the forcewake timer alive for 1ms past the most recent use

Currently the timer is armed for 1ms after the first use and is killed
immediately, dropping the forcewake as early as possible. However, for
very frequent operations the forcewake dance has a large impact on
latency and keeping the timer alive until we are idle is preferred. To
achieve this, if we call intel_uncore_forcewake_get whilst the timer is
alive (repeated use), then set a flag to restart the timer on expiry
rather than drop the forcewake usage count. The timer is racy, the
consequence of the race is to expire the timer earlier than is now
desired but does not impact on correct behaviour. The offset the race
slightly, we set the active flag again on intel_uncore_forcewake_put.
