Lessor is the lease grantor, lessee is the one receiving the lease. Maybe
clarify this with

"Lease grantor, only set if this struct drm_master represents a lessee
holding a lease of objects from @lessor. Full owners of the device have
this set to NULL."

I also figured it'd be a good idea to link to the drm_lease docs here to
explain the concepts, but alas we don't have those :-( Hence at least
define what we mean with lessor, lessee, lease and owner.

For now we've limited the tree to a depth of 1, you can't create another
lease if yourself are a lease. I guess another reason to update the
drm_lease.c docs.

So maybe add "Currently the lease tree depth is limited to 1."

Maybe clarify to "Owners (i.e. @lessor is NULL) ..."

We try to distinguis between list entries and the list, even though it's
the same struct. So maybe

"List entry of lessees of @lessor, where they are linked to @lessee. Not
use for owners."

Maybe add "this list is empty of no leases have been granted."

@lessor so it's highlighted correctly
