Hi John,

Thank you for the patch.

Shouldn't you update the status before calling drm_kms_helper_hotplug_event() 
? Doing it after not only creates a small race condition as 
drm_kms_helper_hotplug_event() sends an event to userspace that could result 
in an ioctl call to retrieve the status, but the status is also checked by 
drm_setup_crtcs() called by drm_fb_helper_hotplug_event().
