Why don't you simply use idr instead of ida? With idr you wouldn't need
the array mapping shrinker id to shrinker ptr. AFAIU you need this
mapping to look up the shrinker by id in shrink_slab. The latter doesn't
seem to be a hot path so using idr there should be acceptable. Since we
already have shrinker_rwsem, which is taken for reading by shrink_slab,
we wouldn't even need any additional locking for it.
