Given that the device tree is entirely static on all platforms using FDT
I'm not convinced that it is sensible to backport any of the fixes for
references not being dropped that are more than one liners,
realistically nothing is ever going to notice the extra references but
there are things that will notice if we underflow references so there's
some risk we could break things somehow. Seems like it's all risk for
zero benefit.
