In the commit this is based on these variables are not allocated using a
devm_ alloc function:

$ git show e00f2fa | grep -A12 *stm32_exti_host_init
> stm32_exti_host_data *stm32_exti_host_init(const struct stm32_exti_drv_data *dd,

The function stm32_exti_probe *does* use devm_k?alloc, so perhaps you
were getting confused with that?
