drm/fb_helper: Fix references to dev->mode_config.num_connectortopic/drm-misc-2016-05-17
During boot, MST hotplugs are generally expected (even if no physical hotplugging occurs) and result in DRM's connector topology changing. This means that using num_connector from the current mode configuration can lead to the number of connectors changing under us. This can lead to some nasty scenarios in fbcon: - We allocate an array to the size of dev->mode_config.num_connectors. - MST hotplug occurs, dev->mode_config.num_connectors gets incremented. - We try to loop through each element in the array using the new value of dev->mode_config.num_connectors, and end up going out of bounds since dev->mode_config.num_connectors is now larger then the array we allocated. fb_helper->connector_count however, will always remain consistent while we do a modeset in fb_helper. Note: This is just polish for 4.7, Dave Airlie's drm_connector refcounting fixed these bugs for real. But it's good enough duct-tape for stable kernel backporting, since backporting the refcounting changes is way too invasive.
