[Intel-gfx] [PATCH v3.1/10] drm/i915: get a permanent RPM reference on platforms w/o RPM support

Currently we disable RPM functionality on platforms that doesn't support
this by not putting/getting the RPM reference we receive from the RPM
core during driver loading/unloading respectively. This is somewhat
obscure, so make it more explicit by keeping a reference dedicated for
this particular purpose whenever the driver is loaded. This makes it
possible to remove the HAS_RUNTIME_PM() special casing from every other
places in the next patch.

- fix intel_runtime_pm_get vs. intel_runtime_pm_put in
- take only a low level RPM reference so the ref tracking asserts
  continue to work (Ville)
- update the commit message
- move the patch earlier for bisectability
