Excellent! I don't see the patch in agd5f/drm-next yet, but it'll

Thanks for fixing this!

One small nit: if possible, add some drm_dbg_atomic() calls explaining
the error right before returning -EINVAL. This is very valuable when
debugging user-space applications and trying to figure out why the
kernel rejects an atomic commit.
