Didn't look too closely, but I think you can't actually do that unless
you lock all the crtcs whenever the number of active pipes is goind to
change. Meaning we'd essentially be back to the one-big-modeset-lock
apporach, which will cause missed flips and whanot on the other pipes.

The alternative I think would consist of:
- make sure level 0 watermark never exceeds total_ddb_size/max_pipes,
so that a modeset doesn't have to care about the wms for the other
pipes not fitting in
- level 1+ watermarks would be checked against total_ddb_size
- protect the plane/pipe commit with the wm mutex whenever the wms
need to be reprogrammed
- keep the flush_wm thing around for the case when ddb size does get
changed, protect it with the wm lock
- when programming wms, we will first filter out any level that
doesn't fit in with the current ddb size, and then program the
rest in
- potentially introduce per-pipe wm locks if the one big lock looks
like an issue, which it might if the flush_wm holds it all the way
through
