Subject[PATCH v11 3/3] ipc: Do cyclic id allocation with ipcmni_extend mode
Date
For ipcmni_extend mode, the sequence number space is only 7 bits. So
the chance of id reuse is relatively high compared with the non-extended
mode.

To alleviate this id reuse problem, the id allocation will be done
cyclically to cycle through all the 24-bit id space before wrapping
around when in ipcmni_extend mode. This may cause the use of more memory
in term of the number of xa_nodes allocated as well as potentially more
cachelines used as the xa_nodes may be spread more sparsely in this case.

There is probably a slight memory and performance cost in doing cyclic
id allocation. For applications that really need more than 32k unique IPC
identifiers, this is a small price to pay to avoid the id reuse problem.

As a result, the chance of id reuse should be even smaller in the
ipcmni_extend mode. For users who worry about id reuse, they can
turn on ipcmni_extend mode, even if they don't need more than 32k
IPC identifiers.
