SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/2] drm/i915: Break busywaiting for requests on pending signals

Obviously correct to break the spin, but if spending a jiffie to react
to signals was the only problem then it is not too severe.

Add something to the commit message about how it was found/reported and
about the severity of impact, etc?

Otherwise,
