[PATCH 3.2 62/92] trace: module: Maintain a valid user count

From: Ben Hutchings
Date: Fri Jun 06 2014 - 21:39:32 EST

3.2.60-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Romain Izard <romain.izard.pro@xxxxxxxxx>

commit 098507ae3ec2331476fb52e85d4040c1cc6d0ef4 upstream.

The replacement of the 'count' variable by two variables 'incs' and
'decs' to resolve some race conditions during module unloading was done
in parallel with some cleanup in the trace subsystem, and was integrated
as a merge.

Unfortunately, the formula for this replacement was wrong in the tracing
code, and the refcount in the traces was not usable as a result.

Use 'count = incs - decs' to compute the user count.
