Thanks for fixing this. However, I am wondering if it is better for the
'of_node_get' to be placed within the
thermal_of_cooling_device_register() function as it seems a bit odd if
the caller needs to know that this is being stored for later use.

Also, taking a quick look, I see a couple other drivers calling
thermal_of_cooling_device_register() and they are also not calling
of_node_get on success. So it maybe easier to fix placing it in the
thermal_of_cooling_device_register() function.

Cheers
Jon
