[PATCH 6/6] drm/i915: Skip post-reset request emission if the engine is not idle

Since commit 7b6da818d86f ("drm/i915: Restore the kernel context after a
GPU reset on an idle engine") we submit a request following the engine
reset. The intent is that we don't submit a request if the engine is
busy (as it will restart active by itself) but we only checked to see if
there were remaining requests in flight on the hardware and skipped
checking to see if there were any ready requests that would be
immediately submitted on restart (the same time as our new request would
be). Having convinced the engine to appear idle in the previous patch,
we can use intel_engine_is_idle() as a better test to only submit a new
request if there are no pending requests.

As it happens, this is tripping up igt/drv_selftest/live_hangcheck in CI
as we overfill the kernel_context ringbuffer trigger an infinite
recursion from within the reset.
