[PATCH 1/3] drm/ttm: Reset num_zones on ttm_mem_global cleanup

num_zones in the ttm_mem_global structure was never reset after calling
ttm_mem_global_release(). Consequently, when multiple GPU drivers
are loaded, and the first one fails to load its firmware, the second
driver will attempt to load its own firmware. Initializing the
second driver invokes ttm_mem_global_init where ttm_mem_global.num_zones
is eventually incremented beyond TTM_MEM_MAX_ZONES.
ttm_mem_global.num_zones is then used to dereference a ttm_mem_zone beyond
the amount of ttm_mem_zones allocated, resulting in a crash.
