From: Lionel Landwerlin <lionel.g.landwerlin@intel.com>

We would like to make use of perf in Vulkan. The Vulkan API is much
lower level than OpenGL, with applications directly exposed to the
concept of command buffers (pretty much equivalent to our batch
buffers). In Vulkan, queries are always limited in scope to a command
buffer. In OpenGL, the lack of command buffer concept meant that
queries' duration could span multiple command buffers.

With that restriction gone in Vulkan, we would like to simplify
measuring performance just by measuring the deltas between the counter
snapshots written by 2 MI_RECORD_PERF_COUNT commands, rather than the
more complex scheme we currently have in the GL driver, using 2
MI_RECORD_PERF_COUNT commands and doing some post processing on the
stream of OA reports, coming from the global OA buffer, to remove any
unrelated deltas in between the 2 MI_RECORD_PERF_COUNT.

Disabling preemption only apply to a single context with which want to
query performance counters for and is considered a privileged
operation, by default protected by CAP_SYS_ADMIN. It is possible to
enable it for a normal user by disabling the paranoid stream setting.

v2: Store preemption setting in intel_context (Chris)

v3: Use priorities to avoid preemption rather than the HW mechanism

v4: Just modify the port priority reporting function

v5: Add nopreempt flag on gem context and always flag requests
    appropriately, regarless of OA reconfiguration.
