Bitmap allows to use unlocked set_bit()/clear_bit() to maintain the map
of not empty shrinkers.

So, the reason to use IDR here is to save bitmap memory? Does this mean
IDA works fast with sparse identifiers? It seems they require per-memcg
lock to call IDR primitives. I just don't have information about this.

If so, which IDA primitive can be used to set particular id in bitmap?
There is idr_alloc_cyclic(idr, NULL, id, id+1, GFP_KERNEL) only I see
to do that.
