Inspired by fix for mem leak of vdpau interop, resource_from_handle
set texture reference count, that need to be decreased and released,
recall there is a similar case for DRI3, that is with VA-API glx
extension, there is temporary TFP(texture from pixmap), we target it
through dma-buf. leak happens when without count down the reference.

Checked and found with mpv vo=opengl case, there only one static TFP,
the leak happens once, but for totem player using gstreamer VA-API glx,
the dynamic TFP for each frame, so leak quite a bit.

This fixes mem leak for mpv and totem.
