How about pblk_caches?

You can drop _cache from the names now that its implicit from the structure.

g_caches? pblk_caches?

pblk_caches_lock? and consider just using a semaphore, we don't need 
separate readers and writers for this.

Looks like what this one does is initializing the caches. I get the 
get/put concept, but you may want to split it into two other functions. 
Such that you have

pblk_init_caches() (only called by pblk_get_caches)

and

pblk_get_caches()
{
	down(&pblk_cache_sem);
	if (kref_read(&caches.kref) > 0) {
		down(&pblk_cache_sem);
		return 0;
}

	ret = pblk_init_caches(..);
	up(&pblk_cache_sem);
	return ret;
}
