I think as a stop-gap (really need to get this stuff landed so people can
start to use it) this is ok, but long term I think the right fix is to
roll out the same pre-register infrastructure for connector and crtc too.
That way drivers don't need to split their setup code into init and
register anymore, which is the point of this entire rework.

If you want, you can adjust the todo accordingly, but we do already have
the paragraph about connector/crtc.

But we can do that later on, because this is definitely a great way
forward. Thanks a lot for pushing this forward!
