Etnaviv is a render-only driver, so will no perform any modesetting on
a display device, so I'm not sure if it's sensible to cover it under
the nomodeset parameter. I see that it is consistent with the other
drivers that deal with a combined render/display device, where the
render device also gets disabled with the nomodeset param, but it
doesn't really match the description of what the parameter is supposed
to do.

I'm not opposed to take this patch for consistency reasons, but I would
like to hear some more opinions from other DRM folks.

Regards,
Lucas
