parentnet: sched: implement reference counted action release (diff)
net: sched: don't release reference on action overwrite
Return from action init function with reference to action taken, even when overwriting existing action. Action init API initializes its fourth argument (pointer to pointer to tc action) to either existing action with same index or newly created action. In case of existing index(and bind argument is zero), init function returns without incrementing action reference counter. Caller of action init then proceeds working with action, without actually holding reference to it. This means that action could be deleted concurrently. Change action init behavior to always take reference to action before returning successfully, in order to protect from concurrent deletion.
