drm/i915: Record the default hw state after reset upon load
Take a copy of the HW state after a reset upon module loading by executing a context switch from a blank context to the kernel context, thus saving the default hw state over the blank context image. We can then use the default hw state to initialise any future context, ensuring that each starts with the default view of hw state. v2: Unmap our default state from the GTT after stealing it from the context. This should stop us from accidentally overwriting it via the GTT (and frees up some precious GTT space).
