This looks like a fairly naive conversion from the old IDR API to the
XArray API.  You should be able to remove mgr->lock entirely, relying on
the xa_lock for synchronising free and get.  If you think it's worth it,
you could even use kfree_rcu() to free the ctx and kref_get_unless_zero()
and then your get path would be lock-free.
