SubjectRe: [PATCH 01/10] mm: Assign id to every memcg-aware shrinker
Hello Kirill,

I don't have any objections to the idea behind this patch set.
Well, at least I don't know how to better tackle the problem you
describe in the cover letter. Please, see below for my comments
regarding implementation details.

This definition could definitely use a comment.

BTW shouldn't we ifdef it?

Can't we reuse shrinker_rwsem for protecting the ida?

AFAIK ida always allocates the smallest available id so you don't need
to keep track of bitmap_id_start.
