I think the above two are impossible, due to the refcounting rules for
struct file.

This is a bit convoluted, since we're in the single-threaded release path
we don't need any locking for file_priv related things. Therefore we can
pull the master check out and just directly return.

But since it's a bit surprising maybe a comment that this can happen when
drm_master_open in drm_open_helper fails?

Another option, and maybe cleaner, would be to move the drm_master_release
from drm_file_free into drm_close_helper. That would be fully symmetrical
and should also fix the bug here?
