devm_* functions operate on the lifecycle of the device, not the driver.
Two totally different things :)

Then please fix that bug independant of any conversion to a new api, as
that is a bugfix that should be backported to older kernels.

Yes, but you can't introduce new bugs when trying to fix existing ones.

Also, you didn't say this was a bugfix anywhere, which is one reason
that writing good changelog text is essencial.
