Documentation

Atomic property for setting the power state of the CRTC. When set to 1
the CRTC will actively display content. When set to 0 the CRTC will be
powered off. There is no expectation that user-space will reset CRTC
resources like the mode and planes when setting ACTIVE to 0.

User-space can rely on an ACTIVE change to 1 to never fail an atomic
test as long as no other property has changed. If a change to ACTIVE
fails an atomic test, this is a driver bug. For this reason setting
ACTIVE to 0 must not release internal resources (like reserved memory
bandwidth or clock generators).

Note that the legacy DPMS property on connectors is internally routed
to control this property for atomic drivers.
