You are perfectly right.

It might be only me, but I like to keep the resource teardown in a
reverse order of their creation. If everything is devm then it is granted.

In case of cppi4 it looks safe after reading in to the DMAengine core,
module core and platform core code.

But does the removed three lines worth over the clarity of how the
module removal is proceeding?

Alexandre and Tony put lots of effort to the cppi4 driver, I let them
decide.
