Why is that needed?

I can imagine that drivers unconditionally upload everything for a
modeset, and hence don't need special damage tracking. But for that it's
imo better to have a clear_damage() helper.

But even for modesets (e.g. resolution changes) I'd expect that virtual
drivers don't want to upload unecessary amounts of data. Manual upload
hw drivers probably need to upload everything, because the panel will have
forgotten all the old data once power cycled.

And if you think this is really the right thing, then we need to rename
the function to tell what it does, e.g.

drm_damage_helper_clear_damage_on_modeset()

drm_damage_helper because I think we should stuff this all into
drm_damage_helper.c, see previous patch.

But I think a

drm_damage_helper_clear_damage(crtc_state)

which you can use in your crtc->atomic_check function like

crtc_atomic_check(state)
{
if (drm_atomic_crtc_needs_modeset(state))
drm_damage_helper_clear_damage(state);
}

is more flexible and useful for drivers. There might be other cases where
clearing damage is the right thing to do. Also, there's the question of
whether no damage clips == full damage or not, so maybe we should call
this helper full_damage() instead.
