PROBE_DEFER also uses system_wq to reprobe drivers, which means when
that again fails, and we try to flush the overall system_wq (to get
all the delayed connectore cleanup work_struct completed), we
deadlock.

Fix this by using just a single cleanup work, so that we can only
flush that one and don't block on anything else. That means a free
list plus locking, a standard pattern.

Adding to the free_list before refcount==0?

May I suggest,

	if (!refcount_dec_and_test())
		return;

	if (llist_add(&conn->free_link, &config->connector_free_list))
		schedule_work(&config->connector_free_work);

llist being much more friendly for freelists:

void drm_connector_free_work_fn(struct work_struct *work)
{
	struct drm_device *dev =
		container_of(work, struct drm_device, mode_config.connector_free_work);
	struct drm_mode_config *config = &dev->mode_config;
	struct drm_connector *connector, *n;
	struct llist_node *freed;

	freed = llist_del_all(config->connector_free_list);
	llist_for_each_entry_safe(connector, n, freed, free_link) {
		drm_mode_object_unregister(dev, &connector->base);
		connector->funcs->destroy(connector);
	}
}

Sadly, this patch doesn't work in my test environment (Samsung Snow
Chromebook with modified DTS), which reproduces the problem discussed
