    drm/i915: Fix unresponsive X server issues
    * In some circumstances, the drm/i915 driver slept on irq_lock with no
      timeout and never woke up, causing the X server to become unresponsive
    * It turns the absence of timeout came from the original FreeBSD version
      of this driver; Linux uses a 1 second timeout by default
    * Add the same 1-second timeout to the culprit function calls, hopefully
      fixing this issue for good
