binder: fix use-after-free in binder_transaction()
User-space normally keeps the node alive when creating a transaction since it has a reference to the target. The local strong ref keeps it alive if the sending process dies before the target process processes the transaction. If the source process is malicious or has a reference counting bug, this can fail. In this case, when we attempt to decrement the node in the failure path, the node has already been freed. This is fixed by taking a tmpref on the node while constructing the transaction. To avoid re-acquiring the node lock and inner proc lock to increment the proc's tmpref, a helper is used that does the ref increments on both the node and proc.
