Subject[GIT PULL] x86-refcount fix for v4.14-rc3
Hi,

Please pull this x86-refcount fix for v4.14-rc3. This restores the x86
fast-refcount protection after fixing a corner case that was found late
before the merge window opened. This was the only problem seen during
the protection's life in linux-next, so getting this into v4.14 is
highly desired.

Thanks!

-Kees
