the iommu mapping will unmap after plane disabled, we need sure that the 
plane really disabled before unmap, if not, the unmap may call before 
plane really disable, vop may access unmap address, then would get iommu 
page fault.

on drivers/gpu/drm/rockchip/rockchip_drm_fb.c

drm_atomic_helper_commit_planes(dev, state, true);
rockchip_atomic_wait_for_complete(dev, state);

We set active_only = true, I think planes can only update when crtc is 
active. and rockchip_atomic_wait_for_complete only wait when crtc is active.
