So this part is still broken. Anything that takes a reference to the
page and holds it while this is called will cause it to break. For
example with the recent fixes we put in place all it would take is a
skb_clone followed by pskb_expand_head and this starts leaking memory.

One of the key bits in order for pagecnt_bias to work is that you have
to deduct the bias once there are no more parties using it. Otherwise
you leave the reference count artificially inflated and the page will
never be freed. It works fine for the single producer single consumer
case but once you introduce multiple consumers this is going to fall
apart.
