[Intel-gfx] [PATCH] drm/i915/gt: Couple up old virtual breadcrumb on new sibling

The second try at staging the transfer of the breadcrumb. In part one,
we realised we could not simply move to the second engine as we were
only holding the breadcrumb lock on the first. So in commit 6c81e21a4742
("drm/i915/gt: Stage the transfer of the virtual breadcrumb"), we
removed it from the first engine and marked up this request to reattach
the signaling on the new engine. However, this failed to take into
account that we only attach the breadcrumb if the new request is added
at the start of the queue, which if we are transferring, it is because
we know there to be a request to be signaled (and hence we would not be
attached). In this second try, we remove from the first list under its
lock, take ownership of the link, and then take the second lock to
complete the transfer.
