Subjectlinux-next: build failure after merge of the net-next tree
Hi all,

After merging the net-next tree, today's linux-next build (powerpc
ppc64_defconfig) failed like this:

In file included from /home/sfr/next/next/include/linux/init_task.h:17:0,
from /home/sfr/next/next/init/init_task.c:2:
/home/sfr/next/next/include/net/net_namespace.h: In function 'check_net':

return atomic_read(&net->count) != 0;

/home/sfr/next/next/arch/powerpc/include/asm/atomic.h:34:23: note: expected 'const atomic_t * {aka const struct <anonymous> *}' but argument is of type 'const refcount_t * {aka const struct refcount_struct *}'
static __inline__ int atomic_read(const atomic_t *v)

and several others similar.

Caused by commit

273c28bc57ca ("net: Convert atomic_t net::count to refcount_t")

interacting with commit

4ee806d51176 ("net: tcp: close sock if net namespace is exiting")

from the net tree.

I have applied the following merge fix patch for today:
