drm/radeon: hold reference to fences in radeon_sa_bo_new
commit f6ff4f67cdf8455d0a4226eeeaf5af17c37d05eb upstream.
is triggering an Oops for me right when xscreensaver
first began doing 3D stuff. After reverting this
patch, xscreensaver has been happily running 3D stuff.

I can revert it, but maybe something else is going on here? Do you have
this same problem on 3.14, and 4.5-rc7?
yes that's an already known issue. Feel free to revert that one for now.
I got it on my TODO list to provide a fixed patch for older kernel, but that
can take a while.
For the background Nicolais patch is correct, but assumes that
radeon_fence_unref() can safely take NULL as the fence which is not the case
for older kernels.
Ok, thanks, now reverted.
And looks like a few more kernels may be affected as well. I'll
revert it from 3.16 kernel, and I'm adding Kamal, Sasha and Jiri to
the CC list.
