[PATCH 14/14] xf86: load modesetting driver on Linux hotplug

From: Dave Airlie <airlied at redhat.com>

This driver is currently really the only choice for a hotplug
at the moment, we can refine this in the future to try and
pick the driver names.

We have to reload this as it can get unloaded it not used
in the original probe.
