> i915_gem_evict_something() is charged with finding a slot within the GTT
> that we may reuse. Since our goal is not to stall, we first look for a
> slot that only overlaps idle vma. To this end, on the first pass we move
> any active vma to the end of the search list. However, we only stopped
> moving active vma after we see the first active vma twice. If during the
> search, that first active vma completed, we would not notice and keep on
> extending the search list.
> Closes: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/drm/intel/-/issues/1746
