Let's make sure splitting a resource on memory hotunplug will never fail.
This will become more relevant once we merge selected system ram
resources - then, we'll trigger that case more often un memory unplug.

In general, this function is already unlikely to fail. When we remove
memory, we free up quite a lot of metadata (memmap, page tables, memory
block device, etc.).

All other error cases inside release_mem_region_adjustable() seem to be
sanity checks if the function would be abused in different context -
let's add WARN_ON_ONCE().
