[PATCH 2/3] drm: introduce DRIVER_FORCE_AUTH

From: Emil Velikov <emil.velikov at collabora.com>

With earlier commits we've removed DRM_AUTH for driver ioctls annotated
with DRM_AUTH | DRM_RENDER_ALLOW, as the protection it introduces is
effectively not existent.

With next commit, we'll effectively do the same for DRM core.

Yet the AMD developers have voiced concerns that by doing so, developers
working on the closed source user-space driver might remove render node
support.

Since we do _not_ want that to happen, add workaround for those two
drivers

Christian, Alex this is the cleaner way to handle AMDGPU/radeon although
if you prefer alternative methods let me know.

Review, acks and others are appreciated, since I'd like to get this
through the drm-misc tree.

Thanks
Emil

Unrelated:
The USE_AGP flag in AMDGPU should be nuked. While for radeon, one can
copy in the driver the 10-20 lines worth of agp_init/release and also
drop the flag.

Bonus points of agp_init code gets a LEGACY check alongside the USE_AGP
one.
