A new generic shared actions API may be used to create shared
counter. There is no point to keep duplicate COUNT action specific
capability to create shared counters.

Right now it is suggested do not touch ID and keep it as is.
Anyway we have plenty of time before 21.11 when it can be removed.
However it is important to highlight the right direction for shared
counters now.

For this one too added a few more people, removal target is 21.11, but it also 
marks the fields as deprecated, so it should be merged in this release.

Can you please review this deprecation notice?

I believe this patch v2 is largely the same a v1 just with some added docs,
right? In which case the acks on v1 from Ajit and Ori should be kept, no?

Reading through the patch history, seems the consensus is that this is
reasonable.
