Ummm… platform_get_resource() doesn’t actually allocate anything. It just cycles through all the resources in the specified platform_device matching the requested type and gives you the numth one. In this sense, it is merely a convenience function though it has the benefit of abstraction and hiding (i.e., it is inadvisable to duplicate its functionality since the implementation may change at any time).
