Right, will drop those two parts from the patch.

Sounds good. This can actually also happen in the failure path of 
mock_drm_getfile if anon_inode_getfile fails. I'll leave a short note 
about both of them.

Hmmm maybe the first option to move the check out of the lock might be 
better. If I'm not wrong, we would otherwise also need to move 
drm_master_release into drm_client_close.
