[PATCH 25/33] fbmem: pull fbcon_fb_blanked out of fb_blank

From: Daniel Vetter
Date: Fri May 24 2019 - 04:58:18 EST

There's a callchain of:

fbcon_fb_blaned -> do_(un)blank_screen -> consw->con_blank
-> fbcon_blank -> fb_blank

Things don't go horribly wrong because the BKL console_lock safes the
day, but that's about it. And the seeming recursion is broken in 2
- Starting from the fbdev ioctl we set FBINFO_MISC_USEREVENT, which
tells the fbcon_blank code to not call fb_blank. This was required
to not deadlock when recursing on the fb_notifier_chain mutex.
- Starting from the con_blank hook we're getting saved by the
console_blanked checks in do_blank/unblank_screen. Or at least
that's my theory.

Anyway, recursion isn't awesome, so let's stop it. Breaking the
recursion avoids the need to be in the FBINFO_MISC_USEREVENT critical
section, so lets move it out of that too.

The astute reader will notice that fb_blank seems to require
lock_fb_info(), which the fbcon code seems to ignore. I have no idea
how to fix that problem, so let's keep ignoring it.

v2: I forgot the sysfs blanking code.
