One thing which I did notice, which is a pre-existing problem
is that the IDA accesses in drivers/platform/x86/intel/vsec.c
are not protected by any locking.

This is likely ok for now because there is only 1 PCI device
per type of ida and the enumeration of the vsec devices
under the PCI device is done in a single loop, so all
IDA accesses are single threaded atm.

But still IMHO it would be good to protect the IDA accesses
(ida_alloc() / ida_free()) with a mutex to protect against
any future races.

I think that a single global static mutex inside
drivers/platform/x86/intel/vsec.c to protect the
ida calls there should suffice for this.
