I was able to reproduce on my very old omap3 beagleboard. Looks very
much like a omap3 DSS HW bug to me. The unfortunate thing is that even
reverting the patch won't remove the issue, if the userspace happens to
configure things in certain order.

It looks to me that if the DSS output is enabled without an overlay (the
primary plane, normally), DSS gets stuck into a bad state, and only
reboot helps (because we can't reset, there's no omap hwmod reset

But there should be nothing wrong with that setup, and if there's first
been a successful display enable, then later we can enable the DSS
without any planes.

So... At the moment, I have no idea how to fix it. Reverting the patch
will cause other things to start breaking, but perhaps that's the only
option as a short term kind-of-fix.
