Subject[PATCH v3 1/4] seccomp: rename "usage" to "refs" and document
Date
Naming the lifetime counter of a seccomp filter "usage" suggests a
little too strongly that its about tasks that are using this filter
while it also tracks other references such as the user notifier or
ptrace. This also updates the documentation to note this fact.

We'll be introducing an actual usage counter in a follow-up patch.
