With the patch title fixed to start with "drm/amd/display:", this is:

Reviewed-by: Nicholas Kazlauskas <nicholas.kazlauskas at amd.com>

So the sorting normally seems to happen at the end of 
drm_helper_probe_single_connector_modes, or after both get_modes and 
fill_modes have been called.

So sorting the list in advance ahead of DRM shouldn't hurt here.

This should help the order at least match the order we query for the 
preferred mode later on when creating the sink for the stream, but it 
still is just masking the overall problem of not checking the right mode 
for deciding when to scale or not.

We'll probably need to either add a private flag to the common modes to 
indicate that they should be scaled or using check the scaling against 
what we thought was the native mode, ie. the one from the encoder.
