Log:
  i915: disable GEN6_MBCTL write in gen6_init_clock_gating

  This write came from Linux commit b4ae3f22d238 which has been implicated
  in Sandy Bridge power consumption issues (albeit under different
  conditions on Linux). Disabling it restores normal power consumption on
  my Sandy Bridge laptop (Thinkpad X220).
