drm/core: Set mode to NULL when connectors in a set drops to 0.

This change “drm/core: Set mode to NULL when connectors in a set drops to 0.” in Linux kernel is authored by Maarten Lankhorst <maarten.lankhorst [at] linux.intel.com> on Tue Aug 11 09:54:59 2015 +0200.

drm/core: Set mode to NULL when connectors in a set drops to 0.

Without this when a MST connector is removed drm_atomic_helper_set_config
can complain about set->mode && !set->num_connectors.
