    Add mode setting support to the DRM layer.
    
    This is a fairly big chunk of work that allows DRM drivers to provide
    full output control and configuration capabilities to userspace.  It was
    motivated by several factors:
      - the fb layer's APIs aren't suited for anything but simple
        configurations
      - coordination between the fb layer, DRM layer, and various userspace
        drivers is poor to non-existent (radeonfb excepted)
      - user level mode setting drivers makes displaying panic & oops
        messages more difficult
      - suspend/resume of graphics state is possible in many more
        configurations with kernel level support
    
    This commit just adds the core DRM part of the mode setting APIs.
    Driver specific commits using these new structure and APIs will follow.
