Subject[PATCH 00/15] v3 kernel core pieces refcount conversions
Date
Changes in v3:
* SoB chain corrected
* minor corrections based on v2 feedback
* rebase on linux-next/master as of today

Changes in v2:
* dropped already merged patches
* rebase on top of linux-next/master
* Now by default refcount_t = atomic_t (*) and uses all atomic
standard operations unless CONFIG_REFCOUNT_FULL is enabled.
This is a compromise for the systems that are critical on
performance (such as net) and cannot accept even slight delay
on the refcounter operations.

This series, for core kernel components, replaces atomic_t reference
counters with the new refcount_t type and API (see include/linux/refcount.h).
By doing this we prevent intentional or accidental
underflows or overflows that can led to use-after-free vulnerabilities.

The patches are fully independent and can be cherry-picked separately.
If there are no objections to the patches, please merge them via respective trees.

If you want to test with refcount_t protection enabled, CONFIG_REFCOUNT_FULL
must be enabled.

* The respective change is currently merged into -next as
"locking/refcount: Create unchecked atomic_t implementation".
