I still think you want to include a obj->map_and_fenceable test here.
When doing 2D benchmarks the stall incurred here to evict an old object
map the to-be-written object into the mappable GTT causes measureable
pain (obviously on non-LLC architectures).

The series looks good and I'll look at the impact upon 2D for pnv and
snb over the next couple of days. With and without the extra check ;-)
