[Intel-gfx] [drm/i915] 04ff178484: phoronix-test-suite.supertuxkart.1024x768.Fullscreen.Ultimate.1.GranParadisoIsland.frames_per_second -30.4% regression

I run “phoronix-test-suite run supertuxkart-1.5.2” on my CML Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS device, and compared the fps between patch and original upstream, there is no any fps performance drop issue. 

        5.10.0-rc3 upstream /  5.10.0-rc3+patch
fps     12.586326           /  12.687711

Best Regards,
