I haven't verified the use of the new API (yet) but I have a few
comments on your patch, below.

I'm not sure I'm right about this...  But the actual change you're
making has nothing to do with what the Intel test robot reported.
I personally find the "Reported-by" here a little misleading, but
maybe the "Link" line that gets added will provide explanation.

Anyway, unless someone else contradicts/corrects me, I'd rather
not have the "Reported-by" here (despite wanting to provide much
credit to <lkp@intel.com>...).

Please align the right-hand side of all three definitions here.

Please do not add a blank line amid the local variable
definitions.

I'm not sure it checks for this, but you should run
your patch through "checkpatch.pl" before you send
it.  E.g.:
     ./scripts/checkpatch.pl idr_to_xarray.patch

The error reported in the build of your first version
of this patch makes me think you might not have test-
built the code.  I don't know if that's the case, but
(at least) building the code is expected before you
submit a patch for review.

The caller of alloc_minor() (gb_uart_probe()) checks the return
value, and if it's -ENOSPC it logs a device error indicating
there are no remaining free device minor numbers.  For xa_alloc()
this is indicated by returning -EBUSY.  Please update the caller
to print the error message based on the updated error code.
