[Intel-gfx] [PATCH] dma-fence: add might_sleep annotation to _wait()

Do it uncontionally, there's a separate peek function with
dma_fence_is_signalled() which can be called from atomic context.

v2: Consensus calls for an unconditional might_sleep (Chris,

Full audit:
- dma-fence.h: Uses MAX_SCHEDULE_TIMOUT, good chance this sleeps
- dma-resv.c: Timeout always at least 1
- st-dma-fence.c: Save to sleep in testcases
- amdgpu_cs.c: Both callers are for variants of the wait ioctl
- amdgpu_device.c: Two callers in vram recover code, both right next
  to mutex_lock.
- amdgpu_vm.c: Use in the vm_wait ioctl, next to _reserve/unreserve
- remaining functions in amdgpu: All for test_ib implementations for
  various engines, caller for that looks all safe (debugfs, driver
  load, reset)
- etnaviv: another wait ioctl
- habanalabs: another wait ioctl
- nouveau_fence.c: hardcoded 15*HZ ... glorious
- nouveau_gem.c: hardcoded 2*HZ ... so not even super consistent, but
  this one does have a WARN_ON :-/ At least this one is only a
  fallback path for when kmalloc fails. Maybe this should be put onto
  some worker list instead, instead of a work per unamp ...
- i915/selftests: Hardecoded HZ / 4 or HZ / 8
- i915/gt/selftests: Going up the callchain looks safe looking at
  nearby callers
- i915/gt/intel_gt_requests.c. Wrapped in a mutex_lock
- i915/gem_i915_gem_wait.c: The i915-version which is called instead
  for i915 fences already has a might_sleep() annotation, so all good
