drm/i915: Declare the swizzling unknown for L-shaped configurations
The old style of memory interleaving swizzled upto the end of the
first even bank of memory, and then used the remainder as unswizzled on
the unpaired bank - i.e. swizzling is not constant for all memory. This
causes problems when we try to migrate memory and so the kernel prevents
migration at all when we detect L-shaped inconsistent swizzling.
However, this issue also extends to userspace who try to manually detile
into memory as the swizzling for an individual page is unknown (it
depends on its physical address only known to the kernel), userspace
cannot correctly swizzle.
Note that this is a new attempt for the previously merged one,

Revert "drm/i915: Declare the swizzling unknown for L-shaped configurations"
This is cc: stable since we need it to fix up troubles with wc cpu
mmaps that userspace recently started to use widely.
