This series contains some improvements that Daniel Vetter proposed following a discussion on a recent series:

While preparing these patches, I also noticed some unprotected uses of drm_master in the vmwgfx driver that can be addressed by new functions from the previous series.

This series is thus broken up into three patches:

1. Switch from the outer drm_device.master_mutex to the inner drm_file.master_lookup_lock in drm_is_current_master.

2. Update the kerneldoc for lease fields in drm_master to clarify lifetime/locking rules.

3. Prevent potential use-after-free bugs by replacing calls to drm_master_get with drm_file_get_master in vmwgfx_surface.c.

Best wishes,

  drm: use the lookup lock in drm_is_current_master
  drm: clarify lifetime/locking for drm_master's lease fields
  drm/vmwgfx: fix potential UAF in vmwgfx_surface.c
