drm/i915: enable low power render writes on GEN3 hardware.
A lot of 945GMs have had stability issues for a long time, this manifested as X hangs, blitter engine hangs, and lots of crashes. one such report is at: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20560 along with numerous distro bugzillas. This only took a week of digging and hair ripping to figure out. Tracked down and tested on a 945GM Lenovo T60, previously running x11perf -copypixwin500 or x11perf -copywinpix500 repeatedly would cause the GPU to wedge within 4 or 5 tries, with random busy bits set. After this patch no hangs were observed. cc: firstname.lastname@example.org Signed-off-by: Dave Airlie <email@example.com>
