Yes we can simplify this:

return id;
exit_free:
kfree(data)
return INVALID_IOASID;
}

The XA API doesn't say that @id passed to xa_alloc() won't be modified
in case of error. It's true in the current implementation, but won't
necessarily stay that way. On the other hand I think it's safe to expect
@id to always be set when xa_alloc() succeeds.

Indeed. But I'm not sure allowing @set to be NULL is such a good idea,
because the data type associated to an ioasid depends on its set. For
example SVA will put an mm_struct in there, and auxiliary domains use
some structure private to the IOMMU domain.

Jacob, could me make @set mandatory, or do you see a use for a global
search? If @set is NULL, then callers can check if the return pointer is
NULL, but will run into trouble if they try to dereference it.

Right

Thanks,
