Subject: linux-next: build failure after merge of the drm tree

Hi Dave,

After merging the drm tree, today's linux-next build (arm
multi_v7_defconfig) failed like this:

drivers/gpu/drm/drm_fb_helper.c: In function 'restore_fbdev_mode':
drivers/gpu/drm/drm_fb_helper.c:448:5: error: 'error' undeclared (first use in this function)
     error = true;

Caused by commit

  03f9abb28c3e ("drm: handle cursor_set2 in restore_fbdev_mode")

>From Linus' tree interacting with commit

  b7bdf0a87add ("drm/fb-helper: Use -errno return in restore_mode_unlocked")

from the drm tree.

I added the following merge fix patch:
