[PATCH 2/6] libnvdimm: Add nd_region_destroy()

Currently there's no way to remove a region from and nvdimm_bus without
tearing down the whole bus. This patch adds an API for removing a single
region from the bus so that we can implement a sensible unbind operation
for the of_nd_region platform driver.
