Subject[PATCH 6/6] drm/encoder: WARN() when adding/removing encoders after device registration
Date
Turns out that we don't actually check this anywhere, and additionally
actually forget to even mention this in our documentation.

Since we've had one driver making this mistake already, let's clarify
this by mentioning this limitation in the kernel docs. Additionally, for
drivers not using the legacy ->load/->unload() hooks (which make it
impossible to create all encoders before registration): print a big
warning when drm_encoder_init() is called after device registration, or
when drm_encoder_cleanup() is called before device unregistration.
