mm, devm_memremap_pages: fix shutdown handling
The last step before devm_memremap_pages() returns success is to allocate a release action, devm_memremap_pages_release(), to tear the entire setup down. However, the result from devm_add_action() is not checked. Checking the error from devm_add_action() is not enough. The api currently relies on the fact that the percpu_ref it is using is killed by the time the devm_memremap_pages_release() is run. Rather than continue this awkward situation, offload the responsibility of killing the percpu_ref to devm_memremap_pages_release() directly. This allows devm_memremap_pages() to do the right thing relative to init failures and shutdown. Without this change we could fail to register the teardown of devm_memremap_pages(). The likelihood of hitting this failure is tiny as small memory allocations almost always succeed. However, the impact of the failure is large given any future reconfiguration, or disable/enable, of an nvdimm namespace will fail forever as subsequent calls to devm_memremap_pages() will fail to setup the pgmap_radix since there will be stale entries for the physical address range. An argument could be made to require that the ->kill() operation be set in the @pgmap arg rather than passed in separately. However, it helps code readability, tracking the lifetime of a given instance, to be able to grep the kill routine directly at the devm_memremap_pages() call site.
