When we need to rebind the vma into the global GTT for snb, we need to
drop the current reloc_cache as it will be holding a kmap_atomic() and
we may need to sleep for i915_vma_bind(). In practice, this is not an
issue as we already hold an rpm reference for the execbuffer, but with
tighter error checking around rpm we need to be more careful.

Hmm yes, very interesting. If you are happy with the performance hit then:

But in general could it also be solved by changing how
intel_runtime_pm_get works - making our wakeref_count top level and only
calling pm_runtime_get_sync on 0 to 1 transition? That would solve the
issue with proposed might_sleep and code paths which know the condition
is actually impossible.

I think we should do that anyway to reduce the jitter we see in calling

I recall the challenge lay in the asserts which also bump our counter to
hide themselves.

Not so easy then. Plan B - do not merge this patch nor my might sleep, but set up a cron job to send the latter for CI once a month. :)
