drm: Hold the mutex when dropping the last GEM reference (v2)
In order to be fully threadsafe we need to check that the drm_gem_object refcount is still 0 after acquiring the mutex in order to call the free function. Otherwise, we may encounter scenarios like: Thread A: Thread B: drm_gem_close unreference_unlocked kref_put mutex_lock ... i915_gem_evict ... kref_get -> BUG ... i915_gem_unbind ... kref_put ... i915_gem_object_free ... mutex_unlock mutex_lock i915_gem_object_free -> BUG i915_gem_object_unbind kfree mutex_unlock Note that no driver is currently using the free_unlocked vfunc and it is scheduled for removal, hasten that process.
