Subject[PATCH] tracing: Fix buffer_ref pipe ops
From
This fixes multiple issues in buffer_pipe_buf_ops:

- The ->steal() handler must not return zero unless the pipe buffer has
the only reference to the page. But generic_pipe_buf_steal() assumes
that every reference to the pipe is tracked by the page's refcount,
which isn't true for these buffers - buffer_pipe_buf_get(), which
duplicates a buffer, doesn't touch the page's refcount.
Fix it by using generic_pipe_buf_nosteal(), which refuses every
attempted theft. It should be easy to actually support ->steal, but the
only current users of pipe_buf_steal() are the virtio console and FUSE,
and they also only use it as an optimization. So it's probably not worth
the effort.
- The ->get() and ->release() handlers can be invoked concurrently on pipe
buffers backed by the same struct buffer_ref. Make them safe against
concurrency by using refcount_t.
- The pointers stored in ->private were only zeroed out when the last
reference to the buffer_ref was dropped. As far as I know, this
shouldn't be necessary anyway, but if we do it, let's always do it.

Completely untested (apart from compiling it). I don't really know
anything about how the tracing subsystem works.
