When unbinding the (IOMMU-enabled) R-Car SATA device on Salvator-XS
(R-Car H3 ES2.0), in preparation of rebinding against vfio-platform for
device pass-through for virtualization:

    echo ee300000.sata > /sys/bus/platform/drivers/sata_rcar/unbind

the kernel crashes with:

While I've bisected this to commit e8e683ae9a736407 ("iommu/of: Fix
probe-deferral"), and reverting that commit on post-v5.0-rc4 kernels
does fix the problem, this turned out to be a red herring.

On arm64, arch_teardown_dma_ops() resets dev->dma_ops to NULL.
Hence if a driver has used a managed DMA allocation API, the allocated
DMA memory will be freed using the direct DMA ops, while it may have
been allocated using a custom DMA ops (iommu_dma_ops in this case).

Fix this by reversing the order of the calls to devres_release_all() and
