Yeah, that's a fair point. The issue is I would like to know if we
reach to this state and dev_dbg isn't usually enabled.
Still, I get what you are saying and I'll change this to dev_dbg.

I don't think that is the case.
Please look at hl_cb_destroy(). There, we do the idr_remove and then
we kref_put the CB. In it's release code path, we check if this is a
CB from pool, and if so, we return it to the pool. When it will be
alloc'ed again, it will get a new id.
The problem in this patch is that hl_cb_destroy is not used yet for
CB's from the pool because the command submission code which use that
comes at a later patch, so indeed it might be confusing. But if you
will take a look at the entire code and check when hl_cb_destroy is
called I think you will agree with me.
But if you still think otherwise, please tell me. I might be missing
something here.

Thanks,
Oded
