Hmm.

void sbitmap_queue_clear(struct sbitmap_queue *sbq, unsigned int nr,
                         unsigned int cpu)
{
        sbitmap_clear_bit_unlock(&sbq->sb, nr);
        sbq_wake_up(sbq);
        if (likely(!sbq->round_robin && nr < sbq->sb.depth))
                *per_cpu_ptr(sbq->alloc_hint, cpu) = nr;
}
EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL(sbitmap_queue_clear);

If we free a tag on a CPU other than the one it's allocated on, that seems
like it's going to guarantee a cacheline pingpong.  Is the alloc_hint
really that valuable?  I'd be tempted to maintain the alloc_hint (if it's
at all valuable) as being just a hint for which word to look at first,
and only update it on allocation, rather than updating it on free.
Then we can drop the 'cpu' argument to sbitmap_queue_clear(), which
would help this conversion because the percpu_ida users don't know what
CPU their tag was allocated on.
