The error here seems to be my presumption that only the i915 was using
fences for GPU access. (In hindsight, it seems obvious that we do not
know why the fence was allocated for the object and so if it has
outstanding rendering, we must assume that it is using a fence for a
rendering op.)

To confirm, please can you try:

diff --git a/drivers/gpu/drm/i915/i915_gem.c
index fd2b8bd..0735518 100644
--- a/drivers/gpu/drm/i915/i915_gem.c

int ret;

(I'm travelling tomorrow, so if this does turn out to be the fault, I'd
appreciate it if someone wrote it up as a complete patch.)

What you describe is exactly the artefact you would see when you access
a tiled texture using linear addressing. Pretty conclusive evidence that
we do need to flush outstanding GPU access.

It does seem like a separate bug. Hopefully, we can get a better handle
on it after we fix this obnoxious tiling issue.
