Hi Christoph.

Is this too much ugly for you? The reason I need it is because
I would like to keep out-of-tree a patch that adds back the
map= module param so to have more fine grain control of my
pmem devices.

[And also to have mapping control per pmem device. For example
 one device can be pages-mapped another uncached ioremap, 3rd
 write through mapping, and so on]

In the patch if pmem loads without map= it will load like
yours, but if map= is not empty it will not call platform_driver_register()
and will manually load devices as before.

I can still do this, of course. But with this here split patch
it will be easier to maintain.

please return the pmem device or an ERR_PTR() here.

Except for that it looks fine for me, and it's exactly what we'd export
for your PCIe device which would get an almost trivial pci_driver wrapper
around it.
