On a modeset I want to disable all old planes by calling plane->disable_plane, which is old_crtc_state->plane_mask.
This is for initial hw readout, where a plane might be active without a fb set. I want to run it during vblank evasion if possible, which
means in atomic_begin or flush.
commit_plane is not called if the old and new state both have a NULL fb, so the initial plane would stay active in this case.
