Subject: [PATCH] lib: Fix some sparse warnings in devres.c

Having a discussion about sparse warnings in the kernel, and that we
should clean them up, I decided to pick a random file to do so. This
happened to be devres.c which gives the following warnings:

  CHECK   lib/devres.c
lib/devres.c:83:9: warning: cast removes address space of expression
lib/devres.c:117:31: warning: incorrect type in return expression (different address spaces)
lib/devres.c:117:31:    expected void [noderef] <asn:2>*
lib/devres.c:117:31:    got void *
lib/devres.c:125:31: warning: incorrect type in return expression (different address spaces)
lib/devres.c:125:31:    expected void [noderef] <asn:2>*
lib/devres.c:125:31:    got void *
lib/devres.c:136:26: warning: incorrect type in assignment (different address spaces)
lib/devres.c:136:26:    expected void [noderef] <asn:2>*[assigned] dest_ptr
lib/devres.c:136:26:    got void *
lib/devres.c:226:9: warning: cast removes address space of expression

Mostly it's just the use of typecasting to void * without adding
__force, or returning ERR_PTR(-ESOMEERR) without typecasting to a
__iomem type.

I added a helper macro IOMEM_ERR_PTR() that does the typecast to make
the code a little nicer than adding ugly typecasts to the code.

This is applied against linux-next.
