That's right, fbcon picks a different driver and binds to it. But
before the patch, on the first connection with a monitor that happened
after setup (i.e. when the fbdev emulation mode set the default 1024x768
mode), a full atomic modeset was trigger for the driver that had the
connection and the "card" output was enabled. Now with your patch that
does not happen on the first connection, but it does after I turn off and
back on the monitor. I know that is how most computer problems are solved,
but still ... :)

Actually the un-ballanced call to set_par happens with your patch (it
gets called for all hotplug events that are *not* deferred. I was trying
to balance things and call set_par also for deferred setups where the
__drm_fb_helper_initial_config() call succeeded. And the fact that we do
call set_par in the hotplug path even when the setup is not deferred
tells me that register_framebuffer() is probably not enough.

I think single gpu case hides the problem because fbcon forces the right
sequence of calls. And I think the old behaviour was correct, as I was
getting output of the second "card" on hotplug, now I have to turn the
monitor off and on again to get some signal sync.
