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.

Current status (2015-09-17)

The updated i915 graphics driver now compiles. The next step is to test it on Intel hardware. Johannes Dieterich helps with this, as we are both in Toronto for the XDC 2015 and my laptop is Radeon-based.

The branch is on GitHub: https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd-base-graphics/tree/drm-i915-update-38

It's probably still too early to test yourself. We will post updates as soon as we have something ready.
