Thanks for merging, more testing definitely sounds good to me.

I thought about this too, but I'm not sure if that's the best solution.
drm_is_current_master calls drm_lease_owner which then walks up the tree
of master lessors. The spinlock protects the master of the current drm
file, but subsequent lessors aren't protected without holding the
device's master mutex.

Yup, now that the potential UAFs are addressed (hopefully), I'll take a
closer look and propose a patch for this.
