    drm - Fix lock order reversal
    * Lock order reversal caused by holding dev_pager_mtx() across
      the object->un_pager.devp.ops->cdev_pg_dtor() call.  devpgr -> drmslk.
    * Move the lock from before to after the call.  Holding the mutex shouldn't
      be necessary across the call.  This also fixes the reversal as devpgr is
      no longer held across the call.
    * Fixes a lock order reversal against drm_ioctl() which obtains drmslk first
      and recurses into a device pager operation which gets devpgr.
    * Fix a few other incidental bugs that would normally not be triggered by
      the DRM code due to outer locks held by the DRM code.  Plus some formatting
