Changes in V2

1) Add freesync video modes based on preferred modes:

* Remove check for connector type before adding freesync compatible
  modes as VRR support is being checked, and there is no reason to block
  freesync video support on eDP.
* use drm_mode_equal() instead of creating same functionality.
* Additional null pointer deference check
* Removed unnecessary variables.
* Cosmetic fixes.

2) Skip modeset for front porch change

* Remove _FSV string being appended to freesync video modes so as to not
  define new policies or break existing application that might use the
  mode name to figure out mode resolution.
* Remove unnecessary variables
* Cosmetic fixes.


This patchset enables freesync video mode usecase where the userspace
can request a freesync compatible video mode such that switching to this
mode does not trigger blanking.

This feature is guarded by a module parameter which is disabled by
default. Enabling this paramters adds additional modes to the driver
modelist, and also enables the optimization to skip modeset when using
one of these modes.
