we do have one currently for some gens, but not others.. hence the
check for # of rings. (Ie. there is a ring per priority level, if
only one ring, that means no preemption/scheduler)

yup

we do that already (with a fence timeline per-ring, in the case of
gens which support multiple rings / preemption).. this patch just
short-circuits that in the case where we already knows the fences will
of the same timeline
