This reverts commit 5677d67ae394 ("drm: Stop resetting connector state to

Unfortunately, not resetting the connector status to unknown actually
breaks reprobing on suspend/resume in i915, which is important to have
working since it means a user docking their laptop in suspend won't have
their monitors work after resume. This commit was originally pushed to fix
a bug with systemd[1], however said bug has already been fixed in

Since "unknown" is technically a valid option to return to userspace for a
connector's status, I would think that this sort of behavior should
probably be expected from userspace. Some good examples of this are the
radeon driver reporting "unknown" for connectors that have done something
wonky during a hotplug event (e.g. part of the initialization of the
connector failed), and the omapdrm driver returns "unknown" for certain
connector types by default.
