Why not just introduce a new function of_find_node_by_alias()? A single
unified function would make sense if the function did something like:
(1) find my path, and return if found (2) if not found, fall back to
searching /aliases. However, since this modified function takes 2
separate formats of input path based on whether it should search for an
alias or not, it seems like 2 separate functions would be a better API.
Perhaps the new API should simply be a wrapper around
of_find_node_by_path, once the alias has been found?
