Subject[PATCH 05/15] kernel: convert task_struct.stack_refcount from atomic_t to refcount_t
Date
refcount_t type and corresponding API should be
used instead of atomic_t when the variable is used as
a reference counter. This allows to avoid accidental
refcounter overflows that might lead to use-after-free
situations.
