Is this^ meant to be EXEC_DEFAULT?

Depends on your viewpoint. EXEC_DEFAULT is zero.

Just wandering if it should enforce EXEC_RENDER. Which I think is what
we want for gen 5-.

Not really. It just wants the default mixed ring. You definitely don't
want to suggest sending blitter commands down the 3D pipe, that would be
even more confusing.

The comment below answers this question as well.

        if (intel_gen(noop) >= 6)
                use_blt = I915_EXEC_BLT;
+     gem_require_ring(fd, use_blt);

Are any gens 6+ that do not have a BLT ring? if that is the case
shouldn't we use '0' like we do for 5- gens?

No, it has to match the engine for which the blitter commands are valid. If
that engine does not exist, there is no alternative except to rewrite the
test not to use those commands. If there was, it indeed would be included
in the selection above.

So, just to wrap my head around it, the commands we are talking about
here are allowed on render for gen5- but only on blitter on 6+. Right?

There is no render for gen5- either. There is a universal ringbuffer
that can handle multiple different client commands, and on the odd
machine a bit stream decoder.

I see, I wasn't making any sense then :).
