Re: net_buf: non-atomic reference counting

Hi Darryl,

I think it is more of a historical relic than a purpose design. There
has not been any reports that this have caused issues. Patches are
welcome of course.

Cheers,
Jukka

Hi all,

I was looking at using net_bufs for an application broadcasting
reference counted buffers to multiple threads and I noticed the
reference counting is not atomic. I'm curious, is this by design?

Thanks.
