Despite what I think the prm recommends, commit f2253bd9859b
("drm/i915/ringbuffer: EMIT_INVALIDATE after switch context") turned out
to be a huge mistake when enabling Ironlake contexts as the GPU would
hang on either a MI_FLUSH or PIPE_CONTROL immediately following the
MI_SET_CONTEXT of an active mesa context (more vanilla contexts, e.g.
simple rendercopies with igt, do not suffer).
