Subject: [PATCH 1/3] drm/file: Rehabilitate the firstopen hook for non-legacy drivers

The firstopen DRM driver hook was initially used to perform hardware
initialization, which is now considered legacy. Only a single user of
firstopen remains at this point (savage).

In some specific cases, non-legacy drivers may also need to implement
these hooks. For instance on VC4, we need to allocate a 16 MiB buffer
for the GPU. Because it's not required for fbcon, it's a waste to
allocate it before userspace starts using the DRM device.

Using firstopen and lastclose for this allocation seems like the best
fit, so re-habilitate the hook to allow it to be called for non-legacy
drivers.
