    radeon/radeon_platform_probe: fix Zaphod mode breakage

    Using radeon_platform_probe function breaks the Zaphod mode because
    it attempts to call xf86AddEntityToScreen multiple times, but nobody
    calls xf86SetEntityShared prior to that. Consequently, calls for all
    but first device instance fail.

    Prior to introduction of platform bus, the logic was that the Probe
    function would make the entity sharable, which would cause Xserver
    to later make it shared prior to adding it to screen. With the
    platform bus loading, add to screen happens in the probe
    function so we have to make it shared there.
