If you expose your cursor plane as a universal you don't need to implement
these two cursor functions at all. Actually the core never calls them, see
drm_mode_cursor_universal. So if you want to expose cursors, please use
universal cursor plane support (like i915).

In general that's how new drivers should expose cursors since without
universal planes support cursors will not be supported with the atomic
ioctl. Since your cursor code just calls the relevant plane functions that
should even simplify your driver ;-)
