As mentioned, I'm all for this consolidation. That said, some notes below...

Hm, I don't think persistent_ram_free_old() is what's wanted here.
That appears to entirely release the region? I want to make sure the
memory is cleared first. And will this area come back on a write, or
does it stay released?

This should be fail_out.

persistent_ram_new() is marked as __init, so this is unsafe to call if
built as a module. I think persistent_ram_new() will need to lose the
__init marking, or I'm misunderstanding something.

Since neither persistent_ram_new() nor persistent_ram_buffer_map()
report the location of the failure, I'd like to keep the error report
(removed below "pr_err("request mem region (0x%lx@0x%llx)
failed\n",...") for failures, so there is something actionable in
dmesg when the platform data is mismatched for the hardware.

This should be fail_przs.

I don't see a reason to re-order these (nothing can use buf yet
because we haven't registered it with pstore yet).

This should be fail_buf.

No reason to rename this from "fail_buf".

This can lead to a BUG, since persistent_ram_free() doesn't handle
NULL arguments.

This target (fail_prz) should be removed, and the kfree is redundant
to fail_buf above.
