[PATCH 08/42] drm/i915: Park the GPU on module load

Once we have flushed the first request through the system to both load a
context and record the default state; tell the GPU to park and idle
itself, putting itself immediately (hopefully at least) into a
powersaving state, and allowing ourselves to start from known state
after setting up all our bookkeeping.
