The only feedback would be that it would be nice if patch 8
were broken down somewhat. But, the only suggestions I could think
of for possible items to split out were:
* intel_bufferobj_buffer: remove flag parameter
* set gpu_active_start/end in a lead-up patch

Another question for patch 8. Would gpu_active_start/end be
able to also handle the job of gpu_active? (Set them out of
range when !gpu_active?) Doesn't seem all that important

Series (with or without changes mentioned above):
