  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  Switching between extended/mirror modes when an external monitor is
  plugged in causes a system hang on at least some machines, like my
  SKL-Y ultramobile test system. It needs a backport of an upstream
  commit from 4.3, modified to work on 4.2-based i915_bpo:

      drm/i915: Split atomic wm update to pre and post variants

  the watermark stuff is Skylake-specific, so can't regress BSW/BDW.
  This has been tested on a number of SKL machines now, fixing the bug.
