Subject: [PATCH 3/3] drm/vc4: Don't liberate the binner BO at runtime suspend

The binner BO is a pre-requisite to GPU operations, so we must ensure
that it is always allocated when the GPU is in use.

Because the buffer is allocated from the same pool as other GPU buffers,
we might run into a situation where we are out of memory at runtime
resume. This causes the binner BO allocation to fail and results in all
subsequent operations to fail, resulting in a major hang in userspace.

Now that we allocate the buffer at firstopen and liberate it at
lastclose, we can just keep it alive during runtime suspend.
