mmap'ing the device multiple times will spam the kernel log with the
DRM_ERROR message about illegal mmap'ing the old fifo space.
How are you hitting this? Multiple mappings should be fine as long as mapping offsets are correct, so hitting this message should indicate that the user-space app is doing something seriously wrong, and
having it present in the log should probably help more than it hurts.


the mmap'ing will fail with an -EINVAL there is no need to emit this
message, so just remove it.
