Subject[PATCH] drm/i915: Mark wait_for_engine() as maybe_unused
The only call of wait_for_engine() is wrapped in a GEM_WARN_ON macro,
which confusingly suppresses the call unless CONFIG_DRM_I915_DEBUG_GEM
is set.

According to the
current behavior is correct, even though it's not obvious. Different
solutions to improve GEM_WARN_ON were discussed, but no conclusion
was reached.

Mark wait_for_engine() as maybe_unused to avoid a compiler warning,
according to the above discussion this is still needed evein if
GEM_WARN_ON is eventually refactored.
