Isn't that a potential use after free? AFAIK misc_deregister does not
guarentee the miscdev will no longer be accessed after it returns, and
the devm will free it after optee_remove returns.

Memory backing a stuct device needs to be freed via the release
function.

We have been going through this for a while with TPM - it seems like
using misc devices dynamically is not a good idea. Manage your own
struct device directly..
