IB/cm: Bump reference count on cm_id before invoking callback
commit 29963437a48475036353b95ab142bf199adb909e upstream. When processing a SIDR REQ, the ib_cm allocates a new cm_id. The refcount of the cm_id is initialized to 1. However, cm_process_work will decrement the refcount after invoking all callbacks. The result is that the cm_id will end up with refcount set to 0 by the end of the sidr req handler. If a user tries to destroy the cm_id, the destruction will proceed, under the incorrect assumption that no other threads are referencing the cm_id. This can lead to a crash when the cm callback thread tries to access the cm_id. This problem was noticed as part of a larger investigation with kernel crashes in the rdma_cm when running on a real time OS.
