Bug#432553: xserver-xorg-video-intel: Outputs seems to be shifted up by 1/2 pixel on DVI monitor
Note: The upper and the lower lines seem to be ok. In the middle of the
screen the text seems to be worst. It's like someone scaled the picture
by one pixel.

Fix load detection to use border region instead of blanking.
Make sure there is some border area to use by changing how the pipe is
configured, then pick a scanline in the middle of the border for load
detection. This lets the load detect code use an active pipe instead of
requiring an idle one.
