Thank you very much for the report! This is an underflow (dec/sub from zero) that is reported by WARNING.
I guess it is unlikely that actual code underflows, so the most probable cause is that it attempted to do refcount_inc/add() from zero, but then failed.
However in that case you should have seen another warning on refcount_inc() somewhere earlier. That one is actually the one I need to see to track the root cause.
Could you tell me how do you arrive to the below output? Boot in what config/etc.
I can try to reproduce to debug further.
