Both asserts went in commit c36beba6b296b ("drm/i915: Seal races between
async GPU cancellation, retirement and signaling"). It looks like its
purpose is to ensure that ->lock is acquired and that interrupts are
also disabled because that lock is always acquired with disabled
interrupts. This isn't required, lockdep is clever enough to yell at you
if you manage to use it wrong.
Let me drop that lockdep_assert_irqs_disabled().
