Just to clarify...

I pulled in today's d-i-n (e1a7374a9920cbbb085ca310e50c903d182d1ca9)
on top of Linus-git HEAD (v3.11-rc6-139-g89b53e5).

This is the list of drm/i915 patches containing "stolen":

      drm/i915: Free stolen node on failed preallocation
      drm/i915: Verify that our stolen memory doesn't conflict
      drm/i915: Use Graphics Base of Stolen Memory on all gen3+
      drm/i915: List objects allocated from stolen memory in debugfs
      drm/i915: Allow the GPU to cache stolen memory <--- *** NOT DROPPED ***
      drm/i915: less magic for stolen preallocated objects w/o gtt offset
      drm/i915: WARN if the bios reserved range is bigger than stolen size
      drm/i915: disable stolen mem for OVERLAY_NEEDS_PHYSICAL
      drm/i915: clarify error paths in create_stolen_for_preallocated

So the culprit patch "drm/i915: Allocate LLC ringbuffers from stolen"
seems to be gone.
I have not compared against my other cumulated patches.
As far as I understood Daniel he dropped a patchset, but I might have
understood him wrong.
