Subject[PATCH 0/3] Use of_get_child_by_name() instead of of_find_node_by_name()
	Hi Ben, Bryan/Richard, Jingoo/Lee,

Internally, of_find_node_by_name() calls of_node_put() on its "from"
parameter. This is a problem if that device_node will be used
afterwards, or if of_node_put() is called on it again (either manually
or in a for_each_*_node() loop) later, as that may cause a zero kref
refcount. This may be caught by the system if CONFIG_OF_DYNAMIC=y:

ERROR: Bad of_node_put() on /....

Use of_get_child_by_name() instead to fix this, and remove existing
workarounds to pre-increase the refcount.

Compile-tested only.

In personal conversations with technical people, I call myself a hacker. But
when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
