Update i915 GPU driver to Linux 3.8

Our kernel-side i915 GPU driver is getting old: platforms starting with Haswell are not supported at all. Furthermore, it lacks at least one feature required by Mesa 9.2+.

Current status (2013-10-24)

An i915 update is in progress by kib@ under sponsorship of the FreeBSD Foundation.

It needs that the update to the DRM generic code makes progress.
