As I mentioned in my reply to v1, this is not correct.

There is a global data struct, but that holds a struct device
pointer, not the device struct.

The device itself is created with platform_device_alloc() +
platform_device_add() from module-init and it is removed
on module-exit by calling platform_device_unregister()

So AFAICT this should keep using the devm_ variant to properly
cleanup the sysfs attributes.

But what this really needs is to be converted to using
amd_hsmp_driver.driver.dev_groups rather then manually
calling devm_device_add_groups() I have already asked
Suma Hegde (AMD) to take a look at this.
