bus_release_resource - release resources on a bus
bus_release_resource(device_t dev, int type, int rid,
struct resource *r);
Free a resource allocated by bus_alloc_resource(9). The resource must
not be in use on release, i.e., call an appropriate function before (e.g.
bus_teardown_intr(9) for IRQs).
dev is the device that owns the resource.
type is the type of resource that is released. It must be of the same
type you allocated it as before. See bus_alloc_resource(9) for valid
rid is the resource ID of the resource. The rid value must be the same
as the one returned by bus_alloc_resource(9).
r is the pointer to struct res, i.e., the resource itself, returned by
EINVAL is returned, if the device dev has no parent, 0 otherwise. The
kernel will panic, if it cannot release the resource.
