This set of patches mainly contains fix for some memory issues
using quite aggressively surfaces and other minor problems like
images going black after a while.

There are no code change from v1, changes:
- fix path prefix
- rebased on drm-next branch;
- add "drm/qxl" prefix on subject;
- add reviewed by.

About which patches should be applied surely (attempting to put a priority)
- "Move main reference counter to GEM object instead of TTM ones" this can
  causes memory corruption even not wanting to;
- "Avoid double free on error" this can be cause leaks in kernel if user space
  wants, mitigated by the fact that usually DRM inodes are owned by root;
- "Handle all errors in qxl_surface_evict" could cause corruption too, not
  really probable but taking into account that Xorg implementation use a lot
  signals is not so impossible;
- "Handle correctly failures in qxl_alloc_relase_reserved", "Do not leak memory
  if qxl_release_list_add fails" just cause leaks on situation where memory is
  already REALLY low, can be omitted;
- "Fix print statement not using uninitialized variable", "Remove format string
  errors" should just print garbage and debugging is disabled by default, not
