That sounds like you are underestimating a bit how much trouble this

No, I never even finished creating it after realizing how much work it
would be.

Yes, I clearly think so.

You are looking at the wrong side. You need to fix the export code path,
not the import ones.

See for example attach on radeon works like this
drm_gem_map_attach->drm_gem_pin->radeon_gem_prime_pin->radeon_bo_reserve->ttm_bo_reserve->dma_resv_lock.

Same for nouveau and probably a few other exporters as well. That will
certainly cause a deadlock if you don't fix it.

I strongly suggest to do this step by step, first attach/detach and then
the rest.

Regards,
Christian.
