Subject[PATCH 1/4 v2] mtd: brcmnand: improve memory management
This patch addresses two related memory management issues in the probe
function:

1. for_each_available_child_of_node performs an of_node_get on each
iteration, so a break out of the loop requires an of_node_put.

A simplified version of the semantic patch that fixes this problem is as
follows (http://coccinelle.lip6.fr):

// <smpl>
@@
expression root,e;
local idexpression child;
@@

for_each_available_child_of_node(root, child) {
... when != of_node_put(child)
when != e = child
(
return child;
|
+ of_node_put(child);
? return ...;
)
...
}
// </smpl>

2. The devm_kzalloc'd data is not used if brcmnand_init_cs fails. Free it
immediately, using devm_kfree in this case, instead of waiting for the
remove function.

Signed-off-by: Julia Lawall <Julia.Lawall@lip6.fr>

v2: Drop of_node_get addition, as another patch will get rid of the need
for it completely.
