[PATCH 11/26] drm/i915/selftests: Basic stress test for rapid context switching

We need to exercise the HW and submission paths for switching contexts
rapidly to check that features such as execlists' wa_tail are adequate.
Plus it's an interesting baseline latency metric.

v2: Check the initial request for allocation errors
