SubjectRe: [PATCH] drm/rockchip: vop: Don't crash for invalid duplicate_state()

I'm not aware of any currently-upstream code that will hit this [1].
I've hit it in out-of-tree code (or, code that I submitted to
dri-devel, but wasn't accepted as-is), and this is the "belt and
braces" part -- the primary fix is that we should avoid calling things
like drm_atomic_get_crtc_state() at inappropriate times.

So, is the "extra safety" check really something that should go to
-stable? (Because let's be honest, everything with a Fixes tag goes
there.) Maybe?

Anyway, if you want to "blame" anything, this commit actually dropped
the safety check:

4e257d9eee23 drm/rockchip: get rid of rockchip_drm_crtc_mode_config

[1] But I'm not omniscient. So maybe it's good to have anyway.
