video: fbdev: intelfb: use arch_phys_wc_add() and ioremap_wc()

Although this driver gives the framebuffer layer a different
size for the framebuffer it uses the entire aperture PCI BAR
size for the MTRR. Since the framebuffer is included in that
range and MTRR was used on the entire PCI BAR WC will have
been preferred on that range as well. This propagates the
WC preference on the same entire PCI BAR.

Convert the driver from using the x86 specific MTRR code to
the architecture agnostic arch_phys_wc_add(). arch_phys_wc_add()
will avoid MTRR if write-combining is available, in order to
take advantage of that also ensure the ioremap'd area is requested
as write-combining.

There are a few motivations for this:

a) Take advantage of PAT when available

b) Help bury MTRR code away, MTRR is architecture specific and on
   x86 its replaced by PAT

c) Help with the goal of eventually using _PAGE_CACHE_UC over
   _PAGE_CACHE_UC_MINUS on x86 on ioremap_nocache() (see commit
   de33c442 titled "x86 PAT: fix performance drop for glx,
   use UC minus for ioremap(), ioremap_nocache() and

The conversion done is expressed by the following Coccinelle
SmPL patch, it additionally required manual intervention to
address all the #ifdery and removal of redundant things which
arch_phys_wc_add() already addresses such as verbose message
about when MTRR fails and doing nothing when we didn't get
an MTRR.

@ mtrr_found @
expression index, base, size;

-index = mtrr_add(base, size, MTRR_TYPE_WRCOMB, 1);
+index = arch_phys_wc_add(base, size);

@ mtrr_rm depends on mtrr_found @
expression mtrr_found.index, mtrr_found.base, mtrr_found.size;

-mtrr_del(index, base, size);

@ mtrr_rm_zero_arg depends on mtrr_found @
expression mtrr_found.index;

-mtrr_del(index, 0, 0);

@ mtrr_rm_fb_info depends on mtrr_found @
struct fb_info *info;
expression mtrr_found.index;

-mtrr_del(index, info->fix.smem_start, info->fix.smem_len);

@ ioremap_replace_nocache depends on mtrr_found @
struct fb_info *info;
expression base, size;

-info->screen_base = ioremap_nocache(base, size);
+info->screen_base = ioremap_wc(base, size);

@ ioremap_replace_default depends on mtrr_found @
struct fb_info *info;
expression base, size;

-info->screen_base = ioremap(base, size);
+info->screen_base = ioremap_wc(base, size);
