In the dax/pmem case, I *think* it should be fine...

devm_add_action_or_reset() only calls the action it is passed on failure
not the entire devm chain. In which case, it should drop all the
references to the percpu counter. Then, if on an error return from
devm_memremap_pages() we call dax_pmem_percpu_kill(), the rest of the
devm chain should be called when we return from a failed probe and it
should proceed as usual.

I think dax_pmem_percpu_kill() also must be called on any error return
from devm_memremap_pages and it is currently not...
