devm_* is equally brief. Also, all existing pcim_*() functions take a
struct pci_dev * as their first argument, because they operate on the
PCI devices. However in this case the devm_pci_remap_*() functions do
not operate on PCI devices. Rather they operate on the struct device
that represents the PCI host bridge. Therefore I think devm_ is more
appropriate here.
