drm/i915: correctly order the ring init sequence
Daniel Vetter [Tue, 7 Aug 2012 07:54:14 +0000 (09:54 +0200)]
commit 0d8957c8a90bbb5d34fab9a304459448a5131e06 upstream.

We may only start to set up the new register values after having
confirmed that the ring is truely off. Otherwise the hw might lose the
newly written register values. This is caught later on in the init
sequence, when we check whether the register writes have stuck.
