So, that patch slipped past me. Not only is the parent reference not ours to drop, but
when I went and looked at dlpar_cpu_add() I also noticed that of_node_put() was done on
the parent prior to the call to dlpar_attach_node(). With the addition of "parent" to the
dlpar_attach_node() parameter list dlpar_cpu_add() needs to be fixed up to hold the
"parent" reference until after dlpar_attach_node() returns.
