commit 311770173fac27845a3a83e2c16100a54d308f72 upstream.

The major drawback of commit 7e34f4e4aad3 ("drm/i915/gen8+: Add RC6 CTX
corruption WA") is that it disables RC6 while Skylake (and friends) is
active, and we do not consider the GPU idle until all outstanding
requests have been retired and the engine switched over to the kernel
context. If userspace is idle, this task falls onto our background idle
worker, which only runs roughly once a second, meaning that userspace has
to have been idle for a couple of seconds before we enable RC6 again.
Naturally, this causes us to consume considerably more energy than
before as powersaving is effectively disabled while a display server
(here's looking at you Xorg) is running.

As execlists will get a completion event as each context is completed,
we can use this interrupt to queue a retire worker bound to this engine
to cleanup idle timelines. We will then immediately notice the idle
engine (without userspace intervention or the aid of the background
retire worker) and start parking the GPU. Thus during light workloads,
we will do much more work to idle the GPU faster...  Hopefully with
commensurate power saving!

v2: Watch context completions and only look at those local to the engine
when retiring to reduce the amount of excess work we perform.
