Then that is the problem right there. You can not have two reference
counted objects that somehow "share" the refrence counted logic like
this. You can not "bind" them together except if you properly handle
the references on all objects.

Hopefully you do not actually have more than one kobject in the same
structure? You can have pointers, but not a real structure.

If you have a pointer, great, treat it as an individual object like you
should and handle things correctly that way by properly incrementing and
decrementing it as needed. But do not think that somehow you are
controlling them at the same time as other parts of the kernel (and
userspace) can grab references and hold things for longer than you are
expecting.

That is why you can not have an empty release function, to do so means
you have a design bug with how you have used these structures.

So please go fix this, if you just have pointers to kobjects, there
should not be any issues. If you do not, then you have problems. Do
you have any specific code I should look at here to try to figure out
what you all are doing (note I'm at a conference all week so my response
time is slow...)

No, and you should not think about it as a "shared lifetime issue", all
objects have their own lifetime and if it just so happens that some of
them seem to share the same increment/decrement logic at the same time,
that's great. But again, you can not rely on that as this test proves.

No it is not as you can see, and as I wrote above.
