Subject: [RFC][PATCH] drm: kirin: Add a mutex to avoid fb initialization race

In some cases I've been seeing a race where two framebuffers
would be initialized, as kirin_fbdev_output_poll_changed()
might get called quickly in succession, resulting in the fb
initialization happening twice. This could cause the system
to boot up with a blank screen.

This patch adds a simple mutex to serialize it and seems to
avoid the race.

Obviously I suspect this patch isn't the best solution, but
I wanted to send it out as something concrete to discuss the
bug.

Suggestions or feedback for a better solution would be greatly
appreciated.
