parentRDMA/uverbs: Remove needs_kfree_rcu from uverbs_obj_type_class (diff)
RDMA/mlx5: Use RCU and direct refcounts to keep memory alive
dispatch_event_fd() runs from a notifier with minimal locking, and relies on RCU and a file refcount to keep the uobject and eventfd alive. As the next patch wants to remove the file_operations release function from the drivers, re-organize things so that the devx_event_notifier() path uses the existing RCU to manage the lifetime of the uobject and eventfd. Move the refcount puts to a call_rcu so that the objects are guaranteed to exist and remove the indirect file refcount.
