Even better we don't need to force everyone to use drm_gem_object, the
hard work is already done with the reservation_object. We could add a
list_head there for unwinding, and then the locking helpers would look
a lot cleaner and simpler imo. reservation_unlock_all() would even be
a real function! And if we do this then I think we should also have a
reservation_acquire_ctx, to store the list_head and maybe anything
else.

Plus all the code you want to touch is dealing with
reservation_object, so that's all covered. And it mirros quite a bit
what we've done with struct drm_modeset_lock, to wrap ww_mutex is
something easier to deal with for kms.
