> The patch LGTM, maybe as an alternative you can leave io_remove_personality() with the interface needed by idr_for_each() and implement io_unregister_personality() calling io_remove_personality() with the right parameters.

Right, don't replace sane types with void * just because.
Leave well-typed io_unregister_personality() and call it from

 * idr_for_each() - Iterate through all stored pointers.
 * If @fn returns anything other than %0, the iteration stops and that
 * value is returned from this function.

For io_remove_personality() iod==NULL should not happen because
it's under for_each and synchronised, but leave the return value be 

io_remove_personality(void *, ...)
	struct io_ring_ctx *ctx = data;

	io_unregister_personality(ctx, id);
	return 0;
