Subject[PATCH 20/25] mm: Simplify anon_vma refcounts
This patch changes the anon_vma refcount to be 0 when the object is
free. It does this by adding 1 ref to being in use in the anon_vma
structure (iow. the anon_vma->head list is not empty).

This allows a simpler release scheme without having to check both the
refcount and the list as well as avoids taking a ref for each entry
on the list.
