Subject[PATCH v2 13/23] counter: Provide alternative counter registration functions
Date
The current implementation gets device lifetime tracking wrong. The
problem is that allocation of struct counter_device is controlled by the
individual drivers but this structure contains a struct device that
might have to live longer than a driver is bound. As a result a command
sequence like:

{ sleep 5; echo bang; } > /dev/counter0 &
sleep 1;
echo 40000000.timer:counter > /sys/bus/platform/drivers/stm32-timer-counter/unbind

can keep a reference to the struct device and unbinding results in
freeing the memory occupied by this device resulting in an oops.

This commit provides two new functions (plus some helpers):
- counter_alloc() to allocate a struct counter_device that is
automatically freed once the embedded struct device is released
- counter_add() to register such a device.

Note that this commit doesn't fix any issues, all drivers have to be
converted to these new functions to correct the lifetime problems.
