[PATCH 03/18] net, l2tp: convert l2tp_session.ref_count 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.
