The patch is correct.

We normally have an empty line before return. I added that while 
applying. Also, I modified the patch description to be more "sure" in 
its language. Here is the final description:

    ARM: davinci: PM: Do not free useful resources in normal path in 'davinci_pm_init'
    
    It is wrong to iounmap resources in the normal path of davinci_pm_init()
    
    The 3 ioremap'ed fields of 'pm_config' can be accessed later on in other
    functions, so we should return 'success' instead of unrolling everything.

I will let this go through some testing before sending for inclusion in 
v4.12 kernel. Thanks for catching these.

For future, when sending more than one patch, please add a cover 
letter. And have the patches appear as replies to the cover letter. 
This happens if you send the patches together with cover letter using 
git-send-email and have chainreplyto set to false in your .gitconfig

Thanks,
Sekhar
