Create a new source file for networking devres helpers and provide
devm_register_netdev() - a managed variant of register_netdev().

I'm writing a new ethernet driver and I realized there's no devres
variant for register_netdev(). Since this is the only function I need
to get rid of the remove() callback, I thought I'll just go ahead and
add it and send it even before the driver to make it available to other
drivers.

Such a new functionality typically is accepted as part of series adding
at least one user only. Therefore best submit it together with the new
network driver.

Why a new source file and not just add the function to net/core/dev.c?

Adding such a struct isn't strictly needed.

In this function you'd need to consider the dependency on a previous
call to devm_alloc_etherdev(). If the netdevice is allocated non-managed,
then free_netdev() would be called whilst the netdevice is still
registered, what would trigger a BUG_ON(). Therefore devm_register_netdev()
should return an error if the netdevice was allocated non-managed.
The mentioned scenario would result from a severe programming error
of course, but there are less experienced driver authors and the net core
should deal gently with wrong API usage.

An example how this could be done you can find in the PCI subsystem,
see pcim_release() and related functions like pcim_enable() and
pcim_set_mwi().

This is a common approach in most sub-systems to have a dedicated
devres.c source file for managed helpers. Eventually we could move
devm_alloc_etherdev() here as well.

I believe it's better in terms of readability.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention, I wasn't aware of that.
I'll rework this.
