devm_ioremap() and devm_ioremap_nocache() are quite similar, both use 
devm_ioremap_release() for the release, why not just defining:

static void __iomem *__devm_ioremap(struct device *dev, resource_size_t 
			   resource_size_t size, bool nocache)
	if (nocache)
		addr = ioremap_nocache(offset, size);
		addr = ioremap(offset, size);

then in include/linux/io.h

static inline void __iomem *devm_ioremap(struct device *dev, 
resource_size_t offset,
			   resource_size_t size)
{return __devm_ioremap(dev, offset, size, false);}

static inline void __iomem *devm_ioremap_nocache(struct device *dev, 
resource_size_t offset,
				   resource_size_t size);
{return __devm_ioremap(dev, offset, size, true);}
