Why would that controller influence the build?

I ran into this error twice, while building Fedora 21 kernel rpms for
v3.19-rc1 on my outdated ThinkPad X41 (which uses i915, for what it's
worth). The error made very little sense to me. Especially since it
didn't happen when building in the local git repository.

So I basically, well, scrubbed the rpmbuild environment. And then the
the third attempt to build kernels rpm succeeded! I assumed a hardware
failure (see outdated above) and made a mental note to investigate that
one of these days.

But your report makes me think it's not my hardware. Could there be some
_random_ failure with this driver in the build? Very odd...
