[Intel-gfx] [PATCH] drm/i915: Disable DC6 for now.

The current DC6 functionality is stable enough for development and is badly needed for working down other platform power issues.  I'm fine if you want to disable it by default, but please only do so in conjunction with i915 kernel override flags to reenable it at runtime.

Subject: [Intel-gfx] [PATCH] drm/i915: Disable DC6 for now.

There is an intermitent RAM corruption happening with DMC micro-controler when in DC6 transitioning to PC9/10. So the recoomendation is to use DC5 as the deeper DC state for now until this issue is being investigated at firmware level.

This macros must be re-worked in order to allow us to use module parameters to allow max DC states. However let's do this simple approach first before products out there start facing this corruption. Also this is the easiest one to be backported by products.
