[PATCH 3.13.y-ckt 006/103] drm/i915: Force the CS stall for invalidate flushes

From: Kamal Mostafa
Date: Wed Feb 18 2015 - 20:05:47 EST

3.13.11-ckt16 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Chris Wilson <chris@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit add284a3a2481e759d6bec35f6444c32c8ddc383 upstream.

In order to act as a full command barrier by itself, we need to tell the
pipecontrol to actually stall the command streamer while the flush runs.
We require the full command barrier before operations like
MI_SET_CONTEXT, which currently rely on a prior invalidate flush.
