From: Yuqi Jin <jinyuqi@huawei.com>

It is well known that the performance of atomic_add is better than that of
atomic_cmpxchg.
The initial value of @f_count is 1. While @f_count is increased by 1 in
__fget_files, it will go through three phases: > 0, < 0, and = 0. When the
fixed value 0 is used as the condition for terminating the increase of 1,
only atomic_cmpxchg can be used. When we use < 0 as the condition for
stopping plus 1, we can use atomic_add to obtain better performance.

we test syscall in unixbench on Huawei Kunpeng920(arm64). We've got a 132%
performance boost.
