Wow. Things are really amiss there. MI_SET_CONTEXT (the first instruction
in the batch) was removed in

commit 45f45c73469f1bd46a1b6fb206f2e9e5e4fd66b3

Remove logical context setup.

which explains why the destination bo is not on the active list, you
have a pre-GEM UMS xf86-video-intel (so the batchbuffer is using absolute
addressing rather than relocs and the kernel memory manager). The hardware
is reporting a PTE error (in the overlay plane!) and the single active
command is to clear the absolute buffer. As it is not being tracked by the
kernel, I can't tell you what's wrong with the buffer, but most probably
either the size or its stride is illegal in the context of that command.
Or maybe even the GTT hasn't been fully initialised for the buffer, it is
impossible to tell.

In short, you can trade this bug against the risk of GTT incoherency that
is endemic on i8xx by updating your driver.
