From: Emil Velikov <emil.velikov at collabora.com>

Use the drm_gem_object_put_unlocked in the documentation for
drm_gem_objects_lookup. The locked version of the helper should be used
solely by people who know exactly what they are doing.

Should prevent issues like ones adddressed with the next patch.
