From: zhangzhijie <zhangzhijie@loongson.cn>

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.

V3: Add comments that This hook is deprecated
- new implementation methods instead of this hook

I don't understand this. Maybe it's "Drivers implementing fbdev 
emulation use drm_kms_helper_hotplug_event() to call ..." ?

Yeah this just doesn't make sense now, this is not the interesting
information. Removing the hint that this should be implemented using
drm_fb_helper_hotplug_changed is really not good.
