Note the behavior of of_get_next_child() (and
of_get_next_available_child()); it "Decrements the refcount of prev." So
the loop only keeps a reference for (at most) one node at a time.

I believe Julia's patch is correct. It's possible the commit description
could have made this aspect clearer though, since I was confused about
this at first as well.
