I'm failing to see how this patch is doing what it advertises to do. At
least applies to dinq it's only deferring the error check. None of the
steps that now happen before allocating the stolen compressed fb use
stolen memory. On any of the errors, we seem to free the stolen memory.
I see a mode check, a platform/plane check, a tiling check, a debug
check now happening before we setup compression, but I fail to see how
that really effects anything.... I'm sorry if I am being obtuse, but
could you please explain a bit better?

While we're moving this... I'd like to see the DRM_DEBUG statement on
one line (I think almost everyone agrees these days that breaking the 80
character limit is acceptable in favor of string grepability).

Also you may as well make intel_fb->obj just obj.
