I've redone the locking with an rcu lock around the get and a spinlock
around the put.  It occurs to me that putting an rcu lock around the
whole thing and doing a get without the refcount increment would save
us the spinlock and put and be fine since we'd be fine with stale but
consistent information traversing the contobj list from this point to
report it.  Problem with that is needing to use GFP_ATOMIC due to the
rcu lock.  If I stick with the spinlock around the put then I can use
GFP_KERNEL and just grab the spinlock while traversing the contobj list.

There is only one other place this is used, in audit_log_exit in
auditsc.c.  I had noted the pattern but wasn't sure it was worth it.
Inline or not?  Should we just let the compiler decide?
