That's not the only problem, there's also:

dup_mmap()
down_write(mmap_sem)
vm_ops->open() -> drm_vm_open()
mutex_lock(struct_mutex);

So we establish,

mmap_sem
offset_mutex

i915_gem_mmap_gtt_ioctl()
mutex_lock(struct_mutex)
i915_gem_create_mmap_offset()
mutex_lock(offset_mutex)

However we still have

struct_mutex
mmap_sem

in basically every copy_*_user() case

But you cannot seem to switch ->fault() to use offset_mutex, which would
work out the inversion because you then have:

struct_mutex
mmap_sem
offset_mutex

So why bother with the offset_mutex? Instead you make your ->fault()
fail randomly.

I'm not sure what Wang Chen sees after this patch, but I should not be
the exact same splat, still it would not at all surprise me if there's
plenty left.

The locking looks very fragile and I don't think this patch is helping
anything, sorry.

So we just fail the fault if someone happens to hold the struct_mutex?
Seems rather fragile, could be another thread doing an ioctl.
