netfilter: nft_compat: don't use refcount_inc on newly allocated entry
When I moved the refcount to refcount_t type I missed the fact that refcount_inc() will result in use-after-free warning with CONFIG_REFCOUNT_FULL=y builds. The correct fix would be to init the reference count to 1 at allocation time, but, unfortunately we cannot do this, as we can't undo that in case something else fails later in the batch. So only solution I see is to special-case the 'new entry' condition and replace refcount_inc() with a "delayed" refcount_set(1) in this case, as done here. The .activate callback can be removed to simplify things, we only need to make sure that deactivate() decrements/unlinks the entry from the list at end of transaction phase (commit or abort).
