Subject: [PATCH] SPI: OMAP: fix over-eager devm_xxx() conversion

1a77b127ae (OMAP : SPI : use devm_* functions) converted the SPI
device controller state to use devm_kzalloc().  Unfortunately, this
is used against an unbound struct device, which results in the
following when the device is eventually bound to its driver:
