[PATCH] drm/amd/display: Don't set mode_changed=false if the stream was removed

When switching from vt to desktop with EDID emulation we can receive
an atomic commit such that we have a crtc where mode_changed = true.

During the dm_update_crtc_state disable pass we remove the stream from
the context and free it on the dm_new_crtc_state.

During the enable pass we compare the new provisional stream to the
dm_old_crtc_state->stream and determine that the stream is unchanged
and no scaling has been changed.

Following this, new_crtc_state->mode_changed is then set to false.
The connectors haven't changed and the CRTC active state hasn't changed
so drm_atomic_crtc_needs_modeset returns false, so we jump to
skip_modeset and we hit:

BUG_ON(dm_new_crtc_state->stream == NULL);

...since the old stream is gone from the context and the new stream is
also still NULL.

Ensure that we still a stream to reuse before checking if we can reuse
the old stream without a full modeset.
