Subject: [PATCH 00/15] v5 kernel core pieces refcount conversions

Now we have at least x86 support for ARCH_HAS_REFCOUNT merged and
arm and others on their way.

Changes in v5:
 * Kees catched that the following changes in
   perf_event_context.refcount and futex_pi_state.refcount
   are not correct now when ARCH_HAS_REFCOUNT is enabled:
    -	WARN_ON(!atomic_inc_not_zero(refcount));
    +	refcount_inc(refcount);
   So they are now changed back to using refcount_inc_not_zero. 

Changes in v4:
 * just rebase and corrections on linux-next/master

Changes in v3:
 * SoB chain corrected
 * minor corrections based on v2 feedback
 * rebase on linux-next/master as of today

Changes in v2:
 * dropped already merged patches
 * rebase on top of linux-next/master
 * Now by default refcount_t = atomic_t (*) and uses all atomic
   standard operations unless CONFIG_REFCOUNT_FULL is enabled.
   This is a compromise for the systems that are critical on
   performance (such as net) and cannot accept even slight delay
   on the refcounter operations.

This series, for core kernel components, replaces atomic_t reference
counters with the new refcount_t type and API (see include/linux/refcount.h).
By doing this we prevent intentional or accidental
underflows or overflows that can led to use-after-free vulnerabilities.

The patches are fully independent and can be cherry-picked separately.
If there are no objections to the patches, please merge them via respective trees.
