modesetting: Fix front_bo leak at drmmode_xf86crtc_resize on XRandR rotation

Since the introduction of "modesetting: Remove unnecessary fb addition from drmmode_xf86crtc_resize" the fb_id isn't initialited at drmmode_xf86crtc_resize.

Rotate operation of XRandR uses rotate_bo. So in this case the fb_id associated to the front_bo is not initialized at drmmode_set_mode_major. So fd_id remains 0.

As every call to drmmode_xf86crtc_resize allocates a new front_bo we should destroy unconditionally the old_front_bo if operation success. So we free the allocated GBM handles.

This avoids crashing xserver with a OOM in the RPI4 1Gb at 4k resolution after 3 series xrandr rotations from normal to left and vice versa reported at
