But this isn't a fpriv->master pointer, but a master->lessor pointer.
Which should never ever be able to change (we'd have tons of uaf bugs
around drm_lease_owner otherwise). So I don't think there's anything
that dev->master_lock protects here that fpriv->master_lookup_lock
doesn't protect already?
Or am I missing something?
The comment in the struct drm_master says it's protected by
mode_config.idr_mutex, but that only applies to the idrs and lists I

Thanks a lot.
