We've never figured out the magic trick to make irq vs. seqno
updates coherent, only tricks to make it work. And since

    drm/i915: Fix __wait_seqno to use true infinite timeouts

we automatically fall back to an irq augmented with polling scheme
after the first missed interrupt. There's really nothing else we can
do, hence tune down the message to informational level. It's still
useful for users in case it reliable preceedes a hard system hang.

If I had a vote it would be DRM_NOTICE,

#define KERN_NOTICE     KERN_SOH "5"    /* normal but significant condition */
#define KERN_INFO       KERN_SOH "6"    /* informational */
