Hi Greg, Andy,

this is a reworked version of devm_krealloc(). This time without the risk
of sleeping with spinlock taken. I noticed that devres_lock is only there
to protect the integrity of the devres list - we can assume users are sane
enough to not devm_kfree() chunks that they devm_krealloc() at the same time
so we only take the lock when manipulating the list now.

I dropped Andy's review tag due to this change.

Regular krealloc() obviously can't work with managed memory. This series
implements devm_krealloc() and adds the first users with hope that this
helper will be adopted by other drivers currently using non-managed
krealloc().

Some additional changes to the code modified by main patches are included.

v1 -> v2:
- remove leftover call to hwmon_device_unregister() from pmbus_core.c
- add a patch extending devm_kmalloc() to handle zero size case
- use WARN_ON() instead of WARN_ONCE() in devm_krealloc() when passed
  a pointer to non-managed memory
- correctly handle the case when devm_krealloc() is passed a pointer to
  memory in .rodata (potentially returned by devm_kstrdup_const())
- correctly handle ZERO_SIZE_PTR passed as the ptr argument in devm_krealloc()

v2 -> v3:
- drop already applied patches
- collect Acks
- add an additional user in iio

v3 -> v4:
- add the kerneldoc for devm_krealloc()
- WARN() outside of spinlock
- rename local variable

v4 -> v5:
- tweak the kerneldoc

v5 -> v6:
- tweak the devres_lock handling in devm_krealloc()
