It seems that my devm foo wasn't quite up to scratch.  Quite why it
doesn't show here while testing it (I have patches for the etnaviv
GPU driver, which I'm regularly inserting/removing) I'm not sure.

Please test this patch - it seems "no worse" for me (in that it didn't
crash before, and it still doesn't crash.)
