The fix ("drm/tidss: fix crash related to accessing freed memory") is in v5.7-rc3, and the conflicting change ("drm/tidss: Use simple encoder") in drm-next.

The conflict resolution in linux-next drops the fix and take the change from drm-next, which causes crash on module removal.

Here's the diff I made on top of linux-next to fix it. Essentially dropping the simple-encoder change, and reapplying the fix. This should be fixed in drm-next when Dave next time pulls in Linus' branch.
