Be careful with this. devm_ioremap and devm_ioremap_resource are not
the same thing, as the former requests the region as well.

It can break things if the region is shared across several drivers.
I don't think this is the case, so in fact adding the request is correct,
but it's a more intrusive change than just "code cleanup".
