i915 driver update in DragonFly

Francois Tigeot has updated the i915 driver to 20160725.  What does that mean for users?  I don’t know; there isn’t a changelog.  But higher version numbers are always more fun!

For fun: I found a terminal only 2 years younger than me.  If you look very closely at this ADM-3A, you will see the prompt is for DragonFly.  I need to retr0bright this thing.
