My thinking was that file_priv->master is invariant only if it is the
creator of master. If file_priv->is_master is false, then a call to
drm_setmaster_ioctl will invoke drm_new_set_master, which then allocates
a new master for file_priv, and puts the old master.

This could be an issue in _drm_lease_held_master, because we dereference
master to get master->dev, master->lessor, and master->leases.

With the same reasoning, in other parts of drm_lease.c, if there's an
access to drm_file->master that's subsequently dereferenced, I added a
lock around them.

I could definitely be mistaken on this, so apologies if this scenario
doesn't arise.

Best wishes,
Desmond
