The hardware reset on the second attempt, so I am treating this as an overzealous warning. According to the code comments, gm45 is known to be prone to failing to reset on the first attempt.

    There's not much we can do here but hope for the best. However the first
    failure happens quite frequently and if often remedied by the second
    attempt to reset HEAD. So only print the error if that attempt also
    fails.

So my original question was: "Bug or feature?" So i guess the warning and/or error message is both! I could easily live with the error message...

Fixed by commit 6fd0d56 drm/i915/ringbuffer: Only print an error on the second attempt to reset head .
