Add resource manageemnt APIs fro pinctrl_register() and pinctrl_unregister()
and use these new APIs on hw driver to reduce the error path code and
remove callback for driver.

just for interest: why didn't you patch freescale/pinctrl-mxs.c?

The remove callback is implemented as:

int mxs_pinctrl_remove(struct platform_device *pdev)
struct mxs_pinctrl_data *d = platform_get_drvdata(pdev);


return 0;

So if I use devm_pinctrl_register() then the sequence will be different like

And I did not want to change the sequence as dont know the side effect until I test it on actual platform which is not there with me.
