To be honest, I don't remember if it was intentional or not. But looking at
it now, I'd say context mode should use the same pattern as the report mode.
The way it is right now context mode certainly generates a fair amount of
false positives.

As for your patch I'd say split this into multiple patches, one patch to add
the missing devm_ variants to the context and report mode and one patch to
improve the matching, since these are two independent changes.
