lock struct_mutex in i915_dma_cleanup()
Can you give the attached patch a go?
drm_irq_uninstall() has to be called with struct_mutex not held and intel_cleanup_ring_buffer() has to be called with struct_mutex held. That bit is straight forward.
I don't know about i915_free_hws() but I think we don't needed to hold struct_mutex for that.
I don't have the actual hardware myself, so I haven't tested this.
That did the trick.
Booted with this patch and I have not seen the crash.
Fixed by commit ee0c6bfbd602cdad2ab1780061b3b1a9108cbd6c .
