I think it won't be better, since we allocate memory under this semaphore.
After we use shrinker_rwsem, we'll have to allocate the memory with GFP_ATOMIC,
which does not seems good. Currently, the patchset makes shrinker_rwsem be taken
for a small time, just to assign already allocated memory to maps.

I saw mnt_alloc_group_id() does the same, so this was the reason, the additional
variable was used. Doesn't this gives a good advise to ida and makes it find
a free id faster?
