[PATCH 09/93] drm/i915: Invalidate the relocation presumed_offsets along the slow path

From: Chris Wilson <chris at chris-wilson.co.uk>

commit 262b6d363fcff16359c93bd58c297f961f6e6273 upstream.

In the slow path, we are forced to copy the relocations prior to
acquiring the struct mutex in order to handle pagefaults. We forgo
copying the new offsets back into the relocation entries in order to
prevent a recursive locking bug should we trigger a pagefault whilst
holding the mutex for the reservations of the execbuffer. Therefore, we
need to reset the presumed_offsets just in case the objects are rebound
back into their old locations after relocating for this exexbuffer - if
that were to happen we would assume the relocations were valid and leave
the actual pointers to the kernels dangling, instant hang.

Fixes regression from commit bcf50e2775bbc3101932d8e4ab8c7902aa4163b4
