Quick comments before I dig into this:
- Please post at least a link to the userspace patches, so that it's
  possible to check how this all fits together
- Please separate the generic infrastructre in drm from the changes to
  support this in i915. I know, this is a rather small feature, but still.

Cheers, Daniel
