Thanks Chris,

This is applied to the kgdb tree, and I'll send the whole atomic
modesetting series over to dri-devel as soon as it passes the regression
tests as that should be the place it is merged from unless we receive
sign-off from Jesse Barnes and Dave Airlie in which case I'll put it in
a future pull request.

It was pretty cool to see the kdb/kms feature finally working on the
laptop I use the most.
