This reverts commit 994efacdf9a087b52f71e620b58dfa526b0cf928.

The justification is that if hw blanking fails (i.e. fbops->fb_blank)
fails, then we still want to shut down the backlight. Which is exactly
_not_ what fb_blank() does and so rather inconsistent if we end up
with different behaviour between fbcon and direct fbdev usage. Given
that the entire notifier maze is getting in the way anyway I figured
it's simplest to revert this not well justified commit.

v2: Add static inline to the dummy version.

Hi Daniel

When this goes round again could you add me to the covering letter?

I looked at all three of the patches and no objections on my side but
I'm reluctant to send out acks because I'm not sure I understood the
wider picture well enough.


Daniel.

It's one of these patch series with some many different subsystems and
people you can't cc the cover to all of them or mailing lists start
rejecting you because too many recipients. I tried to spam sufficient
mailng lists, but I guess not enough.

Cover letter of version one, which tries to explain the full big picture:

https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/dri-devel/2019-May/218362.html

tldr; I have a multi-year plan to improve fbcon locking, because the
current thing is a bit a mess.

Cover letter of this version, where I detail a bit more the details
fixed in this one here:

https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/dri-devel/2019-May/218984.html

I can also bounce these to you if you want.

Thanks, Daniel

BTW Not all relevant patches were posted to linux-fbdev and me (i.e.
"[PATCH 05/33] fbdev/sa1100fb: Remove dead code") - I found them on
other mailing lists but it requires some additional work from me to
find / process them. If possible please Cc: linux-fbdev & me on all
patches in the patchset. Thanks!
