Since the kfree() here used to be in tegra_usb_phy_close() rather than
any remove() function, does it actually make sense to use
devm_kzalloc(); would plain using kzalloc() instead, and not removing
the kfree() calls, be better?

When the PHY code gets converted to be an actual probed driver, then
perhaps using devm will make sense.
