For the VCE buffer range checks that fixed a lockup I experienced while 
working on the userspace driver (VCE writing over the end of a buffer 
into an shader, GPU then trying to execute the messed up shader 
code...). Apart from that VCE is a new feature for 3.15 so we can't 
really break it compared to 3.14.

I can't judge on the I2C mutex since that was Alex suggestion and I'm 
not sure how invasive and/or necessary this is.
