drm: Take lock around probes for drm_fb_helper_hotplug_event

We need to hold the dev->mode_config.mutex whilst detecting the output
status. But we also need to drop it for the call into
drm_fb_helper_single_fb_probe(), which indirectly acquires the lock when
attaching the fbcon.

Failure to do so exposes a race with normal output probing. Detected by
adding some warnings that the mutex is held to the backend detect routines:
