Frankly, there is no release path, so there is no need for put_device.
Once initialized, Exynos IOMMU stays in the system forever. There is no
point to remove IOMMU nor the API for that. Keeping increased refcount
for its device just matches this behavior.

If the missing put_device() is really a problem, then we can move it
from the error path just after data = platform_get_drvdata(sysmmu)
assignment. Feel free to send a patch if you think this is a more
appropriate approach.
