[Intel-gfx] Xserver hang in DRM_I915_GEM_THROTTLE waiting for line 1080 on a display with 768 lines.

I'm working on fixing problem with playing video on rotated displays.

Xorg server 1.6.1
intel driver 2.7.1
kernel 2.26.30

I set up a rotated display:

# xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 768 x 1360, maximum 4096 x 4096
VGA connected 768x1360+0+0 left (normal left inverted right x axis y 
axis) 519mm x 324mm
   NTB-vesa_cvt-1360x768   59.8*+
   1920x1200      60.0 +
   1600x1200      60.0  
   1280x1024      60.0  
   1024x768       60.0  
   800x600        60.3  
   640x480        59.9  

Then I run KeithP's xvtest program that has been modified to create
a 1920x1080 image.

The Xorg server is now hung and gdb shows:

 From I830BlockHandler it is doing a drmCommandNone(

Given that the display has 768 lines its never going to hit line 1080.
