Given the fact that devm_memremap_pages() requires a percpu_ref that is
torn down by devm_memremap_pages_release() the current support for
mapping RAM is broken.

This has been broken since forever and there is no use case to map RAM
in this way, so just kill the support and make it an explicit error.
