Looks reasonable.

If all messages are "generated" by qcom_mhi_qrtr_send() and "released"
in qcom_mhi_qrtr_ul_callback() I don't think you need the refcounting at
all.


Presumably though, it would have been nice to not have to carry a
separate list of packets (and hope that it's in sync with the mhi core)
and instead have the ul callback somehow allow us to derive the skb to
be freed.
