I have an idea: Instead of dropping the priority, drop
power_off_handler_block and add two parameters to register_power_off_handler
and devm_register_power_off_handler instead: the priority and a context.
At the same time, declare that those two functions must be called
with the memory subsystem initialized (register_power_off_handler_simple
must be used otherwise).

With this change, the registration functions can still fail due to memory
allocation errors, but we can get rid of the data structure and simplify
the calling code while retaining functionality. I'll explore that for v7.
