[RFC] drm: Helper macro for drm state duplication

From: Mihail Atanassov

I was working on a few patches adding fields to struct malidp_crtc_state and
found myself writing memcpy multiple times in the ->atomic_duplicate_state
hook because I wanted to avoid copying the drm_crtc_state twice
(__drm_atomic_helper_crtc_duplicate_state copies it already). I figured this
also applies to the other drm_*_state derivatives, so I concocted a macro
helper to do the copy in one chunk (two if you count the __drm_atomic_helper*
one). I'd appreciate some comments on whether anyone else might find this
macro useful. Thanks!
