This logic is the same as kfree_skb() (and kref_put() :). It optimizes
the case where you're the last one freeing I guess and avoids the
dec-and-test in that case..

The kref put code looks very much like the code above. But I can use
krefs to avoid replicating code.

Again, it was modeled after skb.

Its a function handler table. Given an incoming message with a command
number, we can index into the table using the command number to get the
handler function for that message.
