This sounds very familiar to me.  I think I was seeing the same panic in

Can you add this to src/sys/dev/drm/i915_irq.c

if (!dev->irqr) {
  return DRM_ERR(EINVAL);

just above the DRM_WAIT_ON in i915_driver_vblank_wait() (around line
140), and see if that prevents the panic?  Note that I believe this to
be a workaround, and not really the correct fix.

(sorry for not supplying patches, I'm not in a position to right now)
