Another re-spin of the per-client engine busyness series. Highlights from this
version:

 * Refactor of the i915_drm_client concept based on feedback from Chris.
 * Tracking contexts belonging to a client had a flaw where reaped contexts
   would stop contributing to the busyness making the counters go backwards.
   I was simply broken. In this version I had to track per-client stats at the
   same call-sites where per-context is tracked. It's a little bit more runtime
   cost but not too bad.
 * GuC support is out - needs more time than I have at the moment to properly
   wire it up with the latest changes. Plus there is a monotonicity issue with
   either the value stored in pphwsp by the GPU or a bug in my patch which also
   needs to be debugged.

Internally we track time spent on engines for each struct intel_context. This
can serve as a building block for several features from the want list:
smarter scheduler decisions, getrusage(2)-like per-GEM-context functionality
wanted by some customers, cgroups controller, dynamic SSEU tuning,...

Externally, in sysfs, we expose time spent on GPU per client and per engine
class.

Sysfs interface enables us to implement a "top-like" tool for GPU tasks. Or with
a "screenshot":

Implementation wise we add a a bunch of files in sysfs like:

	# cd /sys/class/drm/card0/clients/
	# tree
	.
	├── 7
	│   ├── busy
	│   │   ├── 0
	│   │   ├── 1
	│   │   ├── 2
	│   │   └── 3
	│   ├── name
	│   └── pid
	├── 8
	│   ├── busy
	│   │   ├── 0
	│   │   ├── 1
	│   │   ├── 2
	│   │   └── 3
	│   ├── name
	│   └── pid
	└── 9
	    ├── busy
	    │   ├── 0
	    │   ├── 1
	    │   ├── 2
	    │   └── 3
	    ├── name
	    └── pid


Files in 'busy' directories are numbered using the engine class ABI values and
they contain accumulated nanoseconds each client spent on engines of a
respective class.

It is stil a RFC since it misses dedicated test cases to ensure things really
work as advertised.
