Subject: [PATCH v4 1/5] drm/atomic_helper: Disallow new modesets on unregistered connectors

With the exception of modesets which would switch the DPMS state of a
connector from on to off, we want to make sure that we disallow all
modesets which would result in enabling a new monitor or a new mode
configuration on a monitor if the connector for the display in question
is no longer registered. This allows us to stop userspace from trying to
enable new displays on connectors for an MST topology that were just
removed from the system, without preventing userspace from disabling
DPMS on those connectors.
