I wonder if some applications relied on our idr, assuming they would get
low values for their timer id.
(We could imagine some applications use a table indexed by the timer id)

Probably, this particular case can be optimised by tuning min_id to id of releasing timer (if id of this timer is less than current->signal min_id).
Does this approach solves the issue you mentioned above?
