mtd: nand: sunxi: add missing of_node_put

This change “mtd: nand: sunxi: add missing of_node_put” (commit a81c0f0) in Linux kernel is authored by Julia Lawall <julia.lawall [at]> on Wed Nov 18 23:04:12 2015 +0100.

Description of "mtd: nand: sunxi: add missing of_node_put"

The change “mtd: nand: sunxi: add missing of_node_put” introduces changes as follows.

mtd: nand: sunxi: add missing of_node_put

for_each_child_of_node performs an of_node_get on each iteration, so
a break out of the loop requires an of_node_put.

A simplified version of the semantic patch that fixes this problem is as
follows (

// <smpl>
expression root,e;
local idexpression child;

 for_each_child_of_node(root, child) {
   ... when != of_node_put(child)
       when != e = child
   return child;
+  of_node_put(child);
?  return ...;
// </smpl>
