      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.
