I took a look at this. The correct fix here is to use dev_to_node() instead:

diff --git a/drivers/nvdimm/of_pmem.c b/drivers/nvdimm/of_pmem.c
index 85013bad35de..0a701837dfc0 100644

                memset(&ndr_desc, 0, sizeof(ndr_desc));
                ndr_desc.attr_groups = region_attr_groups;
-               ndr_desc.numa_node = of_node_to_nid(np);
+               ndr_desc.numa_node = dev_to_node(&pdev->dev);
                ndr_desc.res = &pdev->resource[i];
                ndr_desc.of_node = np;
                set_bit(ND_REGION_PAGEMAP, &ndr_desc.flags);


And we should remove the exported symbol.

I'll send a proper patch.
