Start our preparations for guaranteeing endless execution.

First, we just want to estimate the 'ulta-low latency' dispatch overhead
by running an endless chain of batch buffers. The legacy binding process
here will be replaced by async VM_BIND, but for the moment this
suffices to construct the GTT as required for arbitrary
*user-controlled* indirect execution.
