Even if it is not failing with the upstreamed device trees, it is
still good to harden the driver for possible issues.  Moving to devm_
is definitely a right thing to do.  But I also think checking if the
qman is already probed should be the first thing to do before starting
to allocate resources and etc and rolling back later.  Probably we can
move the qm_get_pools_sdqcr() to the begining of the probe to
determine if qman is probed as it doesn't seem to depend on any of the
setups done right now.
