Subject: [PATCH] bus: hisi_lpc: Don't use devm_kzalloc() to allocate logical PIO range

If, after registering a logical PIO range, the driver probe later fails,
the logical PIO range memory will be released automatically.

This causes an issue, in that the logical PIO range is not unregistered
(that is not supported) and the released range memory may be later

Allocate the logical PIO range with kzalloc() to avoid this potential
