I'm a bit confused ... why do we need this helper in common code? You can
only synchronize the final release with your own locks for your own
dma-bufs exported from vmwgfx. So I'm not sure at all whether we want this
in common code.

Also the gem/prime stuff gets by without this (and I have a pretty evil
set of tests for it). The only current bug is that multiple imports of
foreign objects (e.g. using a 2nd gpu to render, then import+share to the
compositor) can still lead to some fun. But that's simply something I
haven't gotten around to yet ...
