On Xe-HP and later devices, we use dedicated compression control state (CCS)
stored in local memory for each surface, to support the 3D and media
The memory required for the CCS of the entire local memory is 1/256 of the
local memory size. So before the kernel boot, the required memory is reserved
for the CCS data and a secure register will be programmed with the CCS base
So when we allocate a object in local memory we dont need to explicitly
allocate the space for ccs data. But when we evict the obj into the smem
to hold the compression related data along with the obj we need smem
space of obj_size + (obj_size/256).
Hence when we create smem for an obj with lmem placement possibility we
create with the extra space.
