Increase kvm's refcount to ensure the guest is alive when the
ap_matrix_mdev is active. An ap mp_matrix becomes active with
a successful open() and ceases to be active with a release().

Your sentence was materially wrong as the mdev is allowed to outlive
the KVM. BTW survive tends to have an 'in spite of' note to it, which
outlive does not. vfio-ap is, I hope, not a calamity that threatens
the life of KVM ;). https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/survive

That check is not sufficient.

You should do the kvm_get_kvm() in vfio_ap_mdev_group_notifier(). VFIO
must ensure that the kvm pointer you get is valid, in a sense that it
points to a valid struct kvm and the kvm object is alive, while you are
in the callback. But not beyond.

If another thread were to decrement the refcount of the kvm object you
would end up with matrix_mdev->kvm pointing to an object that has already
died.

Does my analysis make sense to you?

Since we have ensured the open only works if there is a KVM at that
point in time, and we have taken a reference to KVM, I would expect
KVM can not go away before we give up our reference.
