Of course you meant to say /unsigned/ int pipe =)

I have a couple patches to address this partially, which came about as a
result of the int crtc/crtc_id/pipe/whatever -> unsigned int pipe
conversion work that I've been doing.

I like the idea of moving the callbacks to drm_crtc_helper_funcs. That
allows us to introduce this step by step, without a flag date when every
driver needs to switch the drm_driver functions over.
