Before execlists, the only source of GT interrupts would be
user-interrupts. There the problem is usually not so much that we miss
the GT interrupt, but that the seqno write is not completed by the time
the interrupt is asserted. I hope that was the problem you saw.

Anyway, confidence improved if it was GT as the source of worries.
