    This could be added if we agreed that it would be useful.

    Right, there was no way to deregister the range previously. From
    looking at the history here I see no reason to not support it.

    As for this patch, as you said, the only difference is that we fault on
    trying to register the same range again. So this solution seems reasonable.

    On another point, for the tegra driver, is it possible to defer earlier
    in the probe, before these currently irreversible steps are taken?

    Thanks very much,
    John
