not sure, if drm_file is out there yet. I'll find out when I rebase
this onto something newer I expect.

Where do you expect to need two lookups? At least for the semaphore APIs,
you have a list of wait and list of signals, the lists should be different, I've
no objections to exporting this later, but it would be easier to just do that
with the first user.

Happy once we have a use case for it, I'd rather we didn't expose the syncobj
fd to userspace for anything but sending a syncobj between processes, avoiding
using fd's is one of the main points of this, I'd hate for an API to
demand we use

It's pretty unlikely, so I've gone ahead and used your code.

Done locally, will resend series soon.
