 * removed from that lookup structure in the object destructor.
 * Operations on such objects require at least a read lock around
 * lookup + kref_get, and a write lock around kref_put + remove from lookup
 * structure. Furthermore, RCU implementations become extremely tricky.
 * With a lookup followed by a kref_get_unless_zero *with return value check*
 * locking in the kref_put path can be deferred to the actual removal from
 * the lookup structure and RCU lookups become trivial.
