Subject: [PATCH 3.13 063/187] drm/tilcdc: slave: fix dangling sysfs connector node -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: =?UTF-8?q?Guido=20Mart=C3=ADnez?= <>

commit daa15b4cd1eee58eb1322062a3320b1dbe5dc96e upstream.

Add a drm_sysfs_connector_remove call when we destroy the panel to make
sure the connector node in sysfs gets deleted.

This is required for proper unload and re-load of this driver as a
module. Without this, we would get a warning at re-load time like so:
