This patch moves the non-dynamic dma-buf users over to the dynamic
locking specification. The strict locking convention prevents deadlock
situation for dma-buf importers and exporters.

Previously the "unlocked" versions of the dma-buf API functions weren't
taking the reservation lock and this patch makes them to take the lock.

Intel and AMD GPU drivers already were mapping imported dma-bufs under
the held lock, hence the "locked" variant of the functions are added
for them and the drivers are updated to use the "locked" versions.
In general "Yes, please", but that won't be that easy.

You not only need to change amdgpu and i915, but all drivers
implementing the map_dma_buf(), unmap_dma_buf() callbacks.

Auditing all that code is a huge bunch of work.
Hm, neither of drivers take the resv lock in map_dma_buf/unmap_dma_buf.
It's easy to audit them all and I did it. So either I'm missing
something or it doesn't take much time to check them all. Am I really
missing something?

Ok, so this is only changing map/unmap now?

In this case please separate this from the documentation change.

I would also drop the _locked postfix from the function name, just having _unlocked on all functions which are supposed to be called with the lock held should be sufficient.

Thanks for looking into this,
