[Intel-gfx] [PATCH 0/3] Improve anti-pre-emption w/a for compute workloads

From: John Harrison <John.C.Harrison at Intel.com>

Compute workloads are inherently not pre-emptible on current hardware.
Thus the pre-emption timeout was disabled as a workaround to prevent
unwanted resets. Instead, the hang detection was left to the heartbeat
and its (longer) timeout. This is undesirable with GuC submission as
the heartbeat is a full GT reset rather than a per engine reset and so
is much more destructive. Instead, just bump the pre-emption timeout
to a big value. Also, update the heartbeat to allow such a long
pre-emption delay in the final heartbeat period.
