mimic the behaviour of of_get_next_available_child(), and not
acpi_get_next_subnode(). Does the attached patch work?

Subject: [PATCH] software nodes: Handle the refcounting also in
software_node_get_next_child()

Incrementing the reference count of the node that is
returned in software_node_get_next_child(), and decrementing
the reference count of the previous node.
