One more style nit: s/you/drivers/, so maybe:

"Drivers must either hold a vblank reference acquired through
drm_crtc_vblank_get() or the vblank must have been shut off by calling
drm_crtc_vblank_off()." Those functions then have in turn links and hints
what you also need to do, like not forget to call drm_crtc_vblank_put().
