It's nice and quick, yes. However, sometime the opposite is true and you
have to wait for the batch you want to start before pulling the trigger.

I'd put a usleep(100) in there /* Wait for batch to execute */ and we
should put the wait-for-execution ability in igt_spin_t. Unfortunately
that requires MI_STORE_DWORD_IMM (or more creativity) limiting it's

With the sleep issue addressed (commented upon if nothing else),
