this callback was used by drm_kms_helper_hotplug_event()

V2: (Thanks for Daniel's suggestions)
- remove the FIXME below.since with the drm_client
- infrastructure and the generic fbdev emulation we've
- resolved this all very neatly now.

Hm I looked at this again, and this change is actually wrong. Both
functions exists, but calling drm_kms_helper_hotplug_event() from this hook
would result in an endless loop until we crash somewhere.

>  	 * helper of output changes.

Ah I meant not just removing this, but explaining what to do now instead.
Suggestion:

	 * This hook is deprecated, drivers should instead use
	 * drm_fbdev_generic_setup() which takes care of any necessary
	 * hotplug event forwarding already without further involvement by
	 * the driver.

Can you pls respin, with the function change dropped and the fixme
replaced with the above?

Thanks, Daniel
