SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 1/8] Input: synaptics-rmi4: Use of_get_child_by_name() instead of of_find_node_by_name()

There are 2 other differences in using of_get_child_by_name() in place
of of_find_node_by_name(). One is that now we are following the OF tree
while the spinlock is not held. I think it's fine in our case. The
other difference is that the returned of_node has not been called
of_node_get() on it. I am not 100% sure, but I think it might be good to
call of_node_get() on the of node here, and in remove call
of_node_put(), just to be sure we don't use the of_node while it has
been freed.

Cheers,
Benjamin
