Looking at this, i wonder about the scalability of this API. With just
4 counters it looks pretty ugly. What about 50 counters?

Maybe move the name into the ops structure. Then add a call
devlink_metric_counters_create() where you can pass an array and array
size of op structures? There are plenty of other examples in the
kernel, e.g. sysfs groups, hwmon, etc. where you register a large
bunch of things with the core with a single call.

I guess the most frequent use case is to remove all counters,
e.g. driver unload, or when probe fails. So maybe provide a
devlink_metric_destroy_all(devlink) ?
