This should be:


or the code below won't be included if DRM is built as a module. But see
my other replies as to how we can probably handle this better by moving
this into the DRM subsystem.

It appears the usual method to obtain a drm_display_mode to allocate it
using drm_mode_create(), which will allocate it and associate it with
the struct drm_device.

Now, if you do a memset() on the structure you'll overwrite a number of
fields that have previously been initialized and are actually required
to get everything cleaned up properly later on.

So I think we should remove the call to memset().

This should be:
