[Intel-gfx] [PATCH v2] drm/i915: Check for awaits on still currently executing requests

With the advent of preempt-to-busy, a request may still be on the GPU as
we unwind. And in the case of a unpreemptible [due to HW] request, that
request will remain indefinitely on the GPU even though we have
returned it back to our submission queue, and cleared the active bit.

We only run the execution callbacks on transferring the request from our
submission queue to the execution queue, but if this is a bonded request
that the HW is waiting for, we will not submit it (as we wait for a
fresh execution) even though it is still being executed.

As we know that there are always preemption points between requests, we
know that only the currently executing request may be still active even
though we have cleared the flag.

Testcase: igt/gem_exec_balancer/bonded-dual
