   HEAD: 040757f738e13caaa9c5078bca79aa97e11dde88 ucount: Remove the atomicity from ucount->count

This fixes a race between put_ucounts and get_ucounts that can cause
a use after free.  The fix works by simplifying the code and so there
is not even a temptation to be clever and play spinlock vs atomic
reference games.

Subject: [PATCH] ucount: Remove the atomicity from ucount->count

Always increment/decrement ucount->count under the ucounts_lock.  The
increments are there already and moving the decrements there means the
locking logic of the code is simpler.  This simplification in the
locking logic fixes a race between put_ucounts and get_ucounts that
could result in a use-after-free because the count could go zero then
be found by get_ucounts and then be freed by put_ucounts.

A bug presumably this one was found by a combination of syzkaller and
KASAN.  JongWhan Kim reported the syzkaller failure and Dmitry Vyukov
spotted the race in the code.
