[PATCH 104/119] drm/i915: Request driver probe from an async task

As we are careful not to register external interfaces before the
internals are brought up, we are not dependent upon a synchronous
probing and can allow ourselves to be probed from a secondary thread
during system bootup. We already do relegate some configuration to
asynchronous tasks (such as setting up the fbdev), now do the entire

v2: Requesting async probing from a module is useless as the modprobe is
a separate process that can already be run in parallel, and is run
