Hi Tony, sorry but I realised now that in my patch that I need to
take care of releasing and memory and clocks that were acquired 
during the probe. Here is a V2. If you prefer I can create a delta
patch also with the previous.

Subject: [PATCH V2] ARM: OMAP2+: Allow kernel to boot even if GPMC fails to
 reserve memory

Currently, if the GPMC driver fails to reserve memory when probed we will
call BUG() and the kernel will not boot. Instead of calling BUG(), return
an error from probe and allow kernel to boot.

Boot tested on AM335x beagle bone board and OMAP4430 Panda board.

V2 changes:
- Ensure that clock and memory resources are released on error.
