    Do we really need to do a distributed reference counter implementation
    inside dst cache code ? If you are willing to wait for a while,
    we should have modified Rusty's bigref implementation on top of the
    interleaving dynamic per-cpu allocator. We can look at distributed
    reference counter for dst refcount then and see how that can be
    worked out.
