Hi, I was working on adding the writeback support to VKMS; as a result,
I was using the Liviu’s patchset to validate my implementation [1].
However, I consistently failed to pass the requirements in
igt_display_require(); more specifically, I couldn't pass this test:

 igt_skip("No KMS driver or no outputs, pipes: %d, outputs: %d\n",
               display->n_pipes, display->n_outputs);

Next, I made a simple code that does the following three steps:

 1. Open the device
 2. Collect the resource information with drmModeGetResources()
 3. Set writeback capability via drmSetClientCap()
 4. Print the total of connectors

I noticed that I could not get any connector as well; after some time
debugging the issue and thanks to Anholt’s help in the dri-channel I
learned that I had to use drmSetClientCap() before
drmModeGetResources(). After move all drmSetClientCap() above
drmModeGetResources(), my simple coded displayed the connector
information. I did the same thing within igt_display_require(), and this
test started to pass for me (I did it, in the Liviu’s patch).

In this sense, I checked the igt_display_require() code in the master
branch; and again, I noticed that capabilities are set after getting the
resource information. Is that correct? Is it ok to call
drmModeGetResources() before drmSetClientCap() in this case?

P.s.: I sent it as a RFC because I’m not 100% sure about the change and
the impacts on the tests. If it make sense, I can make a real patch.
