[PATCH v3 06/21] nvmem: use kref

From: Bartosz Golaszewski <bgolaszewski at baylibre.com>

Use kref for reference counting. Use an approach similar to the one
seen in the common clock subsystem: don't actually destroy the nvmem
device until the last user puts it. This way we can get rid of the
users check from nvmem_unregister().
