If the string to be duplicated is in .rodata, it's returned as is from
devm_kstrdup_const(). Never gets added to the devres list, never get's
freed. When the string to be duplicated is not in .rodata,
devm_kstrdup() is called from devm_kstrdup_const(). Now the string is
in the devres list of this device and it will get freed on driver
detach. I really don't see what else could be a problem here.
