From: Tvrtko Ursulin <tvrtko.ursulin@intel.com>

In GuC mode LRC pinning lifetime depends exclusively on the
request liftime. Since that is terminated by the seqno update
that opens up a race condition between GPU finishing writing
out the context image and the driver unpinning the LRC.

To extend the LRC lifetime we will employ a similar approach
to what legacy ringbuffer submission does.

We will start tracking the last submitted context per engine
and keep it pinned until it is replaced by another one.

Note that the driver unload path is a bit fragile and could
benefit greatly from efforts to unify the legacy and exec
list submission code paths.

At the moment i915_gem_context_fini has special casing for the
two which are potentialy not needed, and also depends on
i915_gem_cleanup_ringbuffer running before itself.

v2:
 * Move pinning into engine->emit_request and actually fix
   the reference/unreference logic. (Chris Wilson)

 * ring->dev can be NULL on driver unload so use a different
   route towards it.

v3:
 * Rebase.
 * Handle the reset path. (Chris Wilson)
 * Exclude default context from the pinning - it is impossible
   to get it right before default context special casing in
   general is eliminated.

v4:
 * Rebased & moved context tracking to
   intel_logical_ring_advance_and_submit.
