This should be impossible, drm_master_release is only called when the
struct file is released, which means all ioctls and anything else have
finished (they hold a temporary reference).

fpriv->master can change (if the drm_file becomes newly minted master and
wasnt one before through the setmaster ioctl), but it cannot become NULL
before it's completely gone from the system.
