Subject: [PATCH v2] device-dax: fix cdev leak

If device_add() fails, cleanup the cdev. Otherwise, we leak a kobj_map()
with a stale device number.

As Jason points out, there is a small possibility that userspace has
opened and mapped the device in the time between cdev_add() and the
device_add() failure. We need a new kill_dax_dev() helper to invalidate
any established mappings.

Fixes: ba09c01d2fa8 ("dax: convert to the cdev api")

v2: handle the potential of userspace establishing mappings
