i915.fastboot=1 is now enabled in Rawhide / F30 for Skylake and newer

i've just landed a big milestone for the Flicker Free Boot work I'm doing for Fedors 30. Starting with todays rawhide kernel build, version 5.0.0-0.rc4.git3.1, the fastboot option for the i915 Intel display driver is enabled by default on systems with a Skylake CPU/iGPU and newer, as well as on Valleyview and Cherryview (Bay- and Cherry-Trail) systems.

This means that the last modeset / flicker during boot of UEFI systems using the integrated Intel GPU for display output is now gone.
