Applied and pushed, thanks for the patches.

While I have the attention of someone versed in buildsystem-fu:
intel-gpu-tools also contains a set of tests for the i915 kernel module
(and the libdrm interface for it). Currently we run them with

$ make test

by abusing the automake test rig. Is this ok or is there a better way to
do something like this?

Thanks, Daniel
