Added docbook info regarding Display State Buffer(DSB) which
is added from gen12 onwards to batch submit display HW programming.

+/**
+ * DOC: DSB
+ *
+ * A DSB (Display State Buffer) is a queue of MMIO instructions in the memory
+ * which can be offloaded to DSB HW in Display Controller. DSB HW is a DMA
+ * engine that can be programmed to download the DSB from memory.
+ * It allows driver to batch submit display HW programming. This helps to
+ * reduce loading time and CPU activity, thereby making the context switch
+ * faster. DSB Support added from Gen12 Intel graphics based platform.
+ *
+ * DSB's can access only the pipe, plane, and transcoder Data Island Packet
+ * registers.
+ *
+ * DSB HW can support only register writes (both indexed and direct MMIO
+ * writes). There are no registers reads possible with DSB HW engine.
