Original idr remove function used _bh version so I used it here as well.
As I already replied to your previous question about idrinfo lock usage,
I don't see any particular reason for locking with _bh at this point.
I've contacted the author(Chris Mi) and he said that he just preserved
locking the same way as it was before he changed hash table to idr for
action lookup.

You want me to do standalone patch that cleans up idrinfo locking?

This is what original code returned so I decided to preserve
compatibility.

When idr replace returns non-NULL pointer, which means that somehow
concurrent insertion of action with same index has happened and we are
leaking memory.

By the way I'm still not sure if having this insert unique function is
warranted or I should just add WARN to regular idr insert. What is your
opinion on this?
