Subject[PATCH] drm/vkms: add missing drm_crtc_vblank_put to the get/put pair on flush
This patch adds a missing drm_crtc_vblank_put op to the pair
drm_crtc_vblank_get/put (inc/decrement counter to guarantee vblanks).

It clears the execution of the following kms_cursor_crc subtests:
1. pipe-A-cursor-[size,alpha-opaque, NxN-(on-screen, off-screen, sliding,
random, fast-moving])] - successful when running individually.
2. pipe-A-cursor-dpms passes again
3. pipe-A-cursor-suspend also passes

The issue was initially tracked in the sequential execution of IGT
kms_cursor_crc subtest: when running the test sequence or one of its
subtests twice, the odd execs complete and the pairs get stuck in an
endless wait. In the IGT code, calling a wait_for_vblank before the start
of CRC capture prevented the busy-wait. But the problem persisted in the
pipe-A-cursor-dpms and -suspend subtests.

Checking the history, the pipe-A-cursor-dpms subtest was successful when,
in vkms_atomic_commit_tail, instead of using the flip_done op, it used
wait_for_vblanks. Another way to prevent blocking was wait_one_vblank when
enabling crtc. However, in both cases, pipe-A-cursor-suspend persisted
blocking in the 2nd start of CRC capture, which may indicate that
something got stuck in the step of CRC setup. Indeed, wait_one_vblank in
the crc setup was able to sync things and free all kms_cursor_crc

Tracing and comparing a clean run with a blocked one:
- in a clean one, vkms_crtc_atomic_flush enables vblanks;
- when blocked, only in next op, vkms_crtc_atomic_enable, the vblanks
started. Moreover, a series of vkms_vblank_simulate flow out until
disabling vblanks.
Also watching the steps of vkms_crtc_atomic_flush, when the very first
drm_crtc_vblank_get returned an error, the subtest crashed. On the other
hand, when vblank_get succeeded, the subtest completed. Finally, checking
the flush steps: it increases counter to hold a vblank reference (get),
but there isn't a op to decreased it and release vblanks (put).
