[PATCH 0/5] v2: block subsystem refcounter conversions




changes in v2:
Not needed WARNs are removed since refcount_t warns by itself.
BUG_ONs are left as it is, since refcount_t doesn't bug by default.

This series, for block subsystem, replaces atomic_t reference
counters with the new refcount_t type and API (see include/linux/refcount.h).
By doing this we prevent intentional or accidental
underflows or overflows that can lead to use-after-free vulnerabilities.


Elena Reshetova (5):
  block: convert bio.__bi_cnt from atomic_t to refcount_t
  block: convert blk_queue_tag.refcnt from atomic_t to refcount_t
  block: convert blkcg_gq.refcnt from atomic_t to refcount_t
  block: convert io_context.active_ref from atomic_t to refcount_t
  block: convert bsg_device.ref_count from atomic_t to refcount_t
