If you're doing setting/unsetting under matrix_dev->lock, is it
possible that matrix_mdev->kvm gets unset between here and the next
line, as you don't hold the lock?

Maybe you could
- grab a reference to kvm while holding the lock
- call the mask handling functions with that kvm reference
- lock again, drop the reference, and do the rest of the processing?
