Subject: Re: [PATCH 3/4] sparc: convert mdesc_handle.refcnt from atomic_t
 to refcount_t

From: Elena Reshetova <>

> refcount_t type and corresponding API should be
> used instead of atomic_t when the variable is used as
> a reference counter. This allows to avoid accidental
> refcounter overflows that might lead to use-after-free
