  Prevent disappearing SAD entries by implementing MPsafe refcounting.
  "Why didn't he use SECASVAR_LOCK()/SECASVAR_UNLOCK() macros to
   synchronize access to the secasvar structure's fields?" one may ask.
  There were two reasons:
  1. refcount(9) is faster then mutex(9) synchronization (one atomic
     operation instead of two).
  2. Those macros are not used now at all, so at some point we may decide
     to remove them entirely.
