Subject: [PATCH] drm/msm/dp: Only create debugfs for PRIMARY minor

dpu_kms_debugfs_init() and hence dp_debug_get() gets invoked for each
minor being registered. But dp_debug_get() will allocate a new struct
dp_debug for each call and this will be associated as dp->debug.

As such dp_debug will create debugfs files in both the PRIMARY and the
RENDER minor's debugfs directory, but only the last reference will be

The only use of this reference today is in the cleanup path in
dp_display_deinit_sub_modules() and the dp_debug_private object does
outlive the debugfs entries in either case, so there doesn't seem to be
any adverse effects of this, but per the code the current behavior is
unexpected, so change it to only create dp_debug for the PRIMARY minor.
