    Subject[patch] i915: take struct_mutex in i915_dma_cleanup()
    intel_cleanup_ring_buffer() calls drm_gem_object_unreference() (as
    opposed to drm_gem_object_unreference_unlocked()) so it needs to be
    called with "struct_mutex" held. If we don't hold the lock, it triggers
    a BUG_ON(!mutex_is_locked(&dev->struct_mutex));

    I also audited the other places that call intel_cleanup_ring_buffer()
    and they all hold the lock so they're OK.

    This was introduced in: 8187a2b70e3 "drm/i915: introduce
    intel_ring_buffer structure (V2)" and it's a regression from v2.6.34.
