When calling remove_memory_block(), the function shows following message at
device_release().

Device 'memory528' does not have a release() function, it is broken and must
be fixed.

remove_memory_block() calls kfree(mem). I think it shouled be called from
device_release(). So the patch implements memory_block_release()
