Kernel 4.10 just moves the fence attach to the plane state. It has
nothing to do with the used commit function. The issue going away if you
change that on kernel 4.9 is a red herring.

In any case, can you try the attached patch? It's against 4.10, if you
want to test it on 4.9 you need to replace dma_fence_put(), with
fence_put().

Regards,
Lucas

Just tested it on 4.9 (using fence_put()) and I can still get the
warning sometimes:

Okay, after looking more at the 4.9 code, I understand what's going on.
I've just sent out a patch to fix this issue for kernel 4.9.

Subject: [PATCH] drm/atomic: clean up fences when commit fails before fence
 wait finished

The plane_state fences are only unreferenced when the wait for them
has finished successfully. If the commit fails before or at that point
(abort from userspace) the fences are kept referenced.

As the drivers are not responsible for fence cleanup when the commit is
successful, the helper should also clean them up in the failing case.
