A long time ago (before 3.14) we relied on a permanent pinning of the
ifbdev to lock the fb in place inside the GGTT. However, the
introduction of stealing the BIOS framebuffer and reusing its address in
the GGTT for the fbdev has muddied waters and we use an inherited fb.
However, the inherited fb is only pinned whilst it is active and we no
longer have an explicit pin for the info->system_base mmapping used by
the fbdev. The result is that after some aperture pressure the fbdev may
be evicted, but we continue to write the fbcon into the same GGTT
address - overwriting anything else that may be put into that offset.
The effect is most pronounced across suspend/resume as
intel_fbdev_set_suspend() does a full clear over the whole scanout.

v2: Only unpin the intel_fb is we allocate it. If we inherit the fb from
the BIOS, we do not own the pinned vma (except for the reference we add
in this patch for our access via info->screen_base).
