This patch series addresses potential use-after-free errors when dereferencing pointers to struct drm_master. These were identified after one such bug was caught by Syzbot in drm_getunique():

The series is broken up into two patches:

1. Implement a locked version of drm_is_current_master() function that's used within drm_auth.c

2. Identify areas in drm_lease.c where pointers to struct drm_master are dereferenced, and ensure that the master pointers are protected by a mutex

Change in v2:
- Patch 2: Move the lock and assignment before the DRM_DEBUG_LEASE in drm_mode_get_lease_ioctl, as suggested by Emil Velikov

Desmond Cheong Zhi Xi (2):
  drm: Add a locked version of drm_is_current_master
  drm: Protect drm_master pointers in drm_lease.c
