Thanks for the report. Looks like the patch is "working as intended."

It looks like drm_fb_helper_modinit was deleted outright in
commit bf22c9ec39da ("drm: remove drm_fb_helper_modinit")
in v5.12-rc1.

Florian, can you test if that cherry-picks cleanly and resolves the
issue for you?

Maybe let's check with Christoph if it's ok to backport bf22c9ec39da
to stable 5.10 and 5.4?
