Potentially.

I don't see how that's related.

The issue is that if the caller of DRM_IOCTL_MODE_GETFB is DRM master
(or root, or using a DRM control device node), the ioctl returns a valid
GEM handle for the framebuffer, so the caller can use the underlying
buffer arbitrarily. This is handled by core DRM code, there's nothing
kernel drivers can do about it.
