Subject: [PATCH net 0/3] macsec: reference counting fixes

Patch 1 adds explicit reference counting on RXSCs, instead of the
current implicit reference counting using the RXSA's refcount.

Patch 2 fixes possible kernel panics during module unload caused by an
RCU callback that schedules another RCU callback, which the
rcu_barrier() added in b196c22af5c3 ("macsec: add rcu_barrier() on
module exit") didn't protect against.

Patch 3 fixes a refcounting issue with the underlying device for a
macsec device when link creation fails.

Sabrina Dubroca (3):
  macsec: fix reference counting on RXSC in macsec_handle_frame
  macsec: RXSAs don't need to hold a reference on RXSCs
  macsec: fix negative refcnt on parent link
