Yup, d67739268cf0 annoys RT locking if lockdep is enabled. The below
shut it up for my i915 equipped lappy.

drm/i915/gt: use a LOCAL_IRQ_LOCK in __timeline_mark_lock()

Quoting drm/i915/gt: Mark up the nested engine-pm timeline lock as irqsafe

We use a fake timeline->mutex lock to reassure lockdep that the timeline
is always locked when emitting requests. However, the use inside
__engine_park() may be inside hardirq and so lockdep now complains about
the mixed irq-state of the nested locked. Disable irqs around the
lockdep tracking to keep it happy.

This lockdep appeasement breaks RT because we take sleeping locks between
__timeline_mark_lock()/unlock(). Use a LOCAL_IRQ_LOCK instead.
