Well I had a NV12 test that produced FIFO underruns, did some quick testing against the i915_fifo_underrun_reset file and manually writing it does reset FIFO underruns.
Immediately after i915_fbc_status still reads "FBC disabled: underrun detected", but this is cleared by the next atomic commit. So I think it works, and can be used for igt in the way I wrote it.
