Subject: [PATCH 05/16] drivers, net, mlx4: convert mlx4_srq.refcount from atomic_t to refcount_t

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
situations.
