[Intel-gfx] [PATCH 2/6] drm/i915: Reset ring space estimate after unwinding the request

With a series of unusual events (a sequence of interrupted request
allocations), we could gradually leak the ring->space estimate by
unwinding the ring back to the start of the request, but not return the
used space back to the ring. Eventually and with great misfortune, it
would be possible to trigger ring->space exhaustion with no requests on
the ring.
