Subject[PATCH] drm/i915: Silence build error with UBSAN
When I enable UBSAN and compile this driver with clang I get the
following build error:

drivers/gpu/drm/i915/intel_engine_cs.o: In function `intel_engine_init_execlist':
drivers/gpu/drm/i915/intel_engine_cs.c:411: undefined reference to `__compiletime_assert_411'

from what I can figure out, the compiler can't optimize
execlists_num_ports() sufficiently enough at compile time to figure out
that the 'execlists->port_mask = 1' assignment one line above the
BUILD_BUG_ON_NOT_POWER_OF_2 check will make execlists_num_ports() return
2. Most likely that's because UBSAN is going to check the load inside
execlists_num_ports() and that check isn't omitted so the optimizer
can't optimize away the whole function.

So let's just change this check to cause a build error when the maximum
number of ports isn't a power of two. It looks like this is similar to
what's being checked here so this might work well enough.
