3.5.7.4 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Marcin Slusarz <marcin.slusarz@gmail.com>

commit 92441b2263866c27ef48137be5aa6c8c692652fc upstream.

Commit 2a44e499 ("drm/nouveau/disp: introduce proper init/fini, separate
from create/destroy") started to call display init routines on pre-nv50
hardware on module load. But LVDS init code sets driver state in a way
which prevents modesetting code from operating properly.

nv04_display_init calls nv04_dfp_restore, which sets encoder->last_dpms to
NV_DPMS_CLEARED.

drm_crtc_helper_set_mode
  nv04_dfp_prepare
    nv04_lvds_dpms(DRM_MODE_DPMS_OFF)

nv04_lvds_dpms checks last_dpms mode (which is NV_DPMS_CLEARED) and wrongly
assumes it's a "powersaving mode", the new one (DRM_MODE_DPMS_OFF) is too,
so it skips calling some crucial lvds scripts.
