If userspace tries to run an execbuffer with
- an nonexisting context on render
- non-default context on !render_ring
it needs to get a -EINVAL and the kernel must not execute the batch. Your
code fails at that.
We also need a testcase for this case in i-g-t. Another testcase is trying
to destroy a non-existing context. I haven't rechecked whether your
current code handles that correctly.

See above ;-) I'll look at your current set of testcase later and write
another mail with the things I might find missing.
