[ Upstream commit 987bf116445db5d63a5c2ed94c4479687d9c9973 ]

In amdgpu_dm_commit_tail(), wait until flip_done() is signaled before
we signal hw_done().


This is to temporarily address a paging error that occurs when a
nonblocking commit contends with another commit, particularly in a
mirrored display configuration where at least 2 CRTCs are updated.
The error occurs in drm_atomic_helper_wait_for_flip_done(), when we
attempt to access the contents of new_crtc_state->commit.

Here's the sequence for a mirrored 2 display setup (irrelevant steps
left out for clarity):

**THREAD 1**                        | **THREAD 2**
Initialize atomic state for flip    |
Queue worker                        |

                                    | Do work for flip
                                    | Signal hw_done() on CRTC 1
                                    | Signal hw_done() on CRTC 2
                                    | Wait for flip_done() on CRTC 1

                                <---- **PREEMPTED BY THREAD 1**

Initialize atomic state for cursor  |
update (1)                          |
Do cursor update work on both CRTCs |
Clear atomic state (2)              |
**DONE**                            |
                                    | Wait for flip_done() on CRTC 2
                                    | *ERROR*

The issue starts with (1). When the atomic state is initialized, the
current CRTC states are duplicated to be the new_crtc_states, and
referenced to be the old_crtc_states. (The new_crtc_states are to be
filled with update data.)

Some things to note:

* Due to the mirrored configuration, the cursor updates on both CRTCs.

* At this point, the pflip IRQ has already been handled, and flip_done
  signaled on all CRTCs. The cursor commit can therefore continue.

* The old_crtc_states used by the cursor update are the **same states**
  as the new_crtc_states used by the flip worker.

At (2), the old_crtc_state is freed (*), and the cursor commit
completes. We then context switch back to the flip worker, where we
attempt to access the new_crtc_state->commit object. This is
problematic, as this state has already been freed.

(*) Technically, 'state->crtcs[i].state' is freed, which was made to
    reference old_crtc_state in drm_atomic_helper_swap_state()


By moving hw_done() after wait_for_flip_done(), we're guaranteed that
the new_crtc_state (from the flip worker's perspective) still exists.
This is because any other commit will be blocked, waiting for the
hw_done() signal.

Note that both the i915 and imx drivers have this sequence flipped
already, masking this problem.
