Subject[PATCH -next] sparc: Populate 'device' for platform device devicetree nodes
Date
Since commit 61e82530d80f ("of/platform: Point to struct device from device
node"), the 'device' pointer in devicetree nodes for platform devices must
be set for of_find_device_by_node to succeed. This is not the case unless
the platform device was created using of_platform_device_create(), which
is not always the case. This causes all sparc images to crash with "Unable
to handle NULL pointer reference" in functions such as iommu_init(), which
don't expect of_find_device_by_node() to return NULL.

This patch depends on the patch causing the problem (which can not be easily
reverted). It should probably go through the same tree as that patch,
or the patches should be merged.
