Subject: [PATCH net-next v6 2/4] page_pool: halve BIAS_MAX for multiple user references of a fragment

Referring to patch [1], in order to support multiple users referencing the
same fragment and prevent overflow from pp_ref_count growing, the initial
value of pp_ref_count is halved, leaving room for pp_ref_count to increment
before the page is drained.
