block: prevent possible io_context->refcount overflow
Currently io_context has an atomic_t(32-bit) as refcount. In the case of cfq, for each device against whcih a task does I/O, a reference to the io_context would be taken. And when there are multiple process sharing io_contexts(CLONE_IO) would also have a reference to the same io_context. Theoretically the possible maximum number of processes sharing the same io_context + the number of disks/cfq_data referring to the same io_context can overflow the 32-bit counter on a very high-end machine. Even though it is an improbable case, let us make it atomic_long_t.
