idr: make idr_destroy() imply idr_remove_all()
idr is silly in quite a few ways, one of which is how it's supposed to be destroyed - idr_destroy() doesn't release IDs and doesn't even whine if the idr isn't empty. If the caller forgets idr_remove_all(), it simply leaks memory. Even ida gets this wrong and leaks memory on destruction. There is absoltely no reason not to call idr_remove_all() from idr_destroy(). Nobody is abusing idr_destroy() for shrinking free layer buffer and continues to use idr after idr_destroy(), so it's safe to do remove_all from destroy. In the whole kernel, there is only one place where idr_remove_all() is legitimiately used without following idr_destroy() while there are quite a few places where the caller forgets either idr_remove_all() or idr_destroy() leaking memory. This patch makes idr_destroy() call idr_destroy_all() and updates the function description accordingly.
