Subject[PATCH v5 2/7] mm, devm_memremap_pages: Kill mapping "System RAM" support
Given the fact that devm_memremap_pages() requires a percpu_ref that is
torn down by devm_memremap_pages_release() the current support for
mapping RAM is broken.

Support for remapping "System RAM" has been broken since the beginning
and there is no existing user of this this code path, so just kill the
support and make it an explicit error.

This cleanup also simplifies a follow-on patch to fix the error path
when setting a devm release action for devm_memremap_pages_release()
