mutex does not protect from this at all, it's a logic bug. Think about
adding 5 devices and then removing the 2nd one. What is the number
assigned to the new device that is added afterward?

And you need a mutex for the idr anyway, if you are touching it in a non
probe/release callback way (those are already serialized by the bus
lock).
