Subject[069/119] drm/i915: Select CONFIG_SHMEM
2.6.31-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Chris Wilson <chris@chris-wilson.co.uk>

commit ca9ab10033d190c1ede85fdf456307bdfdabf079 upstream.

The driver requires shmfs as the backing filesystem to handle the buffer
objects, so ensure it is selected if the user chooses to build our
driver.

Fixes: Bug 14662 - Dell E5500 kernel panic with KMS
http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14662

The revealing nature of the panic is the NULL function pointer
dereference in read_cache_page_async().
