Hello Marek,

I've run a deeper analysis over this implementation.

If I may take rockchip's "rockchip_drm_vop.c" driver, there is an boolean "is_enabled" set to true when crtc_atomic_enable is called.

The above implementation could save us from adding such field in the ltdc_dev structure.

Another solution could be in order to simply call pm_runtime_get_sync() in ltdc_crtc_mode_set_nofb() and by removing this condition in ltdc_atomic_crtc_disable() the driver behaves just like the first version of this patch.

In this way, it avoids such conditions and seems more to get along with the current implementation.
