Yes komeda needs such clean up (disableing all planes is
enough for such cleanup), but no matter it handles by old master or
the new master, just before the new master enable the crtc is enouth
for komeda.
I think the problem here is which place we should do such cleanup:
USER or KERNEL mode.

For kernel: set_master/drop_master is a good place.
For user: enter_vt and leave_vt.

Why I decide to add it to kernel:
- So many users: X/wayland/Android, avoid duplidated code.
- we also plan to support third-part user. they may not do such
  cleanup for komeda.

Thanks
