I agree, matrix_mdev->kvm can go NULL any time and we are risking
a null pointer dereference here.

Another idea would be to do


static void vfio_ap_mdev_unset_kvm(struct ap_matrix_mdev *matrix_mdev)
{
struct kvm *kvm;

mutex_lock(&matrix_dev->lock);
if (matrix_mdev->kvm) {
kvm = matrix_mdev->kvm;
matrix_mdev->kvm = NULL;
mutex_unlock(&matrix_dev->lock);
kvm_arch_crypto_clear_masks(kvm);
mutex_lock(&matrix_dev->lock);
matrix_mdev->kvm->arch.crypto.pqap_hook = NULL;
vfio_ap_mdev_reset_queues(matrix_mdev->mdev);
kvm_put_kvm(kvm);
}
mutex_unlock(&matrix_dev->lock);
}

That way only one unset would actually do the unset and cleanup
and every other invocation would bail out with only checking
matrix_mdev->kvm.
