[PATCH 11/36] drm/gem: add drm_object_put helper

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

Spelling out _unlocked for each and every driver is a annoying.
Especially if we consider how many drivers, do not know (or need to)
about the horror stories involving struct_mutex.

Add helper, which will allow us to transition the drivers one by one,
dropping the suffix.
