Hi Harry, Alex, The solution given while reviewing my patch was that "DC should support enabling a CRTC without a framebuffer."
Since the revert is a temporary workaround to address issue at hand and considering the bigger regression it will cause on ChromeOS(explained below), I would strongly recommend that the revert should not be mainlined (to linus tree), until a proper fix for both the issues i.e., flickering and BUG hit on atomic is found. For the sake of everyone's understanding in the list below is a brief background. Mainline patch from intel folks, "846c7df drm/atomic: Try to preserve the crtc enabled state in drm_atomic_remove_fb, v2." introduces a slight behavioral change to rmfb. Instead of disabling a crtc when the primary plane is disabled, it now preserves it. This change leads to BUG hit while performing atomic commit on amd driver leading to reboot/system instability on ChromeOS which has enabled drm atomic way of rendering, I also remember it causing some issue on other OS as well.
