Subject: fbdev: Fix unregistering of framebuffers without device

From: Thomas Zimmermann <tzimmermann@suse.de>

commit 0f525289ff0ddeb380813bd81e0f9bdaaa1c9078 upstream.

OF framebuffers do not have an underlying device in the Linux
device hierarchy. Do a regular unregister call instead of hot
unplugging such a non-existing device. Fixes a NULL dereference.
An example error message on ppc64le is shown below.

The bug [1] was introduced by commit 27599aacbaef ("fbdev: Hot-unplug
firmware fb devices on forced removal"). Most firmware framebuffers
have an underlying platform device, which can be hot-unplugged
before loading the native graphics driver. OF framebuffers do not
(yet) have that device. Fix the code by unregistering the framebuffer
as before without a hot unplug.

Tested with 5.17 on qemu ppc64le emulation.
