Subject[PATCH] video/logo: fix use logo after free prevention
After 92b004d1aa9f367c372511ca0330f58216b25703 the logos disappeared on
Freescale i.MX53 and i.MX6 SoC's (detected on linux-3.12.37).
This happens because the fb_find_logo function is validly called
(initdata still not freed) AFTER newly introduced latecall
fb_logo_late_init.

Instead of stetting a logos_freed flag somewhere in lateinit, this patch
uses system_state==SYSTEM_BOOTING as indication for valid initdata.
