Why don't you just use a global reference count first? Is the latency
and scalability of crypto_newsession and crypto_freesession critical?
I am not familiar with opencrypto -- maybe the answer is yes. But in
crypto_newsession, crypto_freesession, and cryptointr, you're still
acquiring a global lock. That defeats the purpose of using
localcount, which is to make the latency and scalability of
acquire/release no more than a CPU-local integer increment.
