[PATCH 21/23] net, ax25: convert ax25_uid_assoc.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.
