Silence... ?

I read UMS is still ignored, because e.g. that uninitialized
ring->irq_lock which I've wrote about above is for sure used e.g. in
gen6_render_ring_get_irq() added to ring vtable in
intel_render_ring_init_dri().

And also is copy-pasting, instead of properly structuring things, ok?


Why not revert what caused trouble and introduced other subtle bugs, and
redo things properly in the first place?
