For rpm suspend, we only zap the user's mmap and not mark the fence as
lost. I think that's the missing piece as to why this is not as simple as
it could be for rpm-resume. On rpm-resume we only need to restore pinned
fences, and fences should only be pinned for hw access, and so there
should never be any if we were rpm-suspended. (Assuming that all pinned
fences are active, which on the surface seems a reasonable assumption.)

If that holds true, we do not need this at all for runtime pm (we still
need it across full system suspend/reset) and just need to doctor the
existing scary i915_gem_release_all_mmaps() (aka
i915_gem_runtime_suspend()!) to both release the mmap and throw away the
fence tracing. At least then we only have one dragon nest.
