Kernel driver in use: i915
Please let me know, if you need further info.
Yeah, that's pretty severely broken...what kernel are you using?
My kernel is 4.9.24-hardened. Should I try 4.18.0, for example?

Yes, if you can't reproduce on a more recent kernel, we can reassign to the i915 kernel driver. Thanks!
I could be wrong, but I think this issue might have been fixed by :

drm/i915: Fix i915_gem_evict_for_vma (soft-pinning)
Unfortunately, this commit doesn't look like it made it to 4.9 :(
Could the i915 team look into whether this needs to happen?
I cannot reproduce it on a more recent kernel (e.g. 4.20.13 or 5.1.4). So it seems to be fixed there.
Reporter, if this issue is not seen on latest kernel, can I close this bug?
Yes We Can ;-)
Based on the feedback closing this issue as WORKSFORME.
