[PATCH v5] Fix loading of module radeonfb on PowerMac




When the linux kernel is build with (typical kernel ship with Debian
installer):

CONFIG_FB=y
CONFIG_FB_OF=y
CONFIG_VT_HW_CONSOLE_BINDING=y
CONFIG_FB_RADEON=m

The offb driver takes precedence over module radeonfb. It is then
impossible to load the module, error reported is:

[   96.551486] radeonfb 0000:00:10.0: enabling device (0006 -> 0007)
[   96.551526] radeonfb 0000:00:10.0: BAR 0: can't reserve [mem 0x98000000-0x9fffffff pref]
[   96.551531] radeonfb (0000:00:10.0): cannot request region 0.
[   96.551545] radeonfb: probe of 0000:00:10.0 failed with error -16

This patch reproduce the behavior of the module radeon, so as to make it
possible to load radeonfb when offb is first loaded, see
commit a56f7428d753 ("drm/radeon: Add early unregister of firmware fb's").

v2: Only fails when CONFIG_PCC is not set
v3: Only fails when CONFIG_FB_OF is not set, CONFIG_PCC was too broad. Since the conflicts in region is due to OFfb explicitly refers to it.
v4: Use drm_fb_helper_remove_conflicting_framebuffers from drm_fb_helper
v5: do not use drm_fb_helper_remove_conflicting_framebuffers from drm_fb_helper
    remove ifdef hacks since not needed once framebuffer is properly decremented
