Subject: [PATCH 3.16 038/158] powerpc/pseries: Failure on removing device node

3.16-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Gavin Shan <>

commit f1b3929c232784580e5d8ee324b6bc634e709575 upstream.

While running command "drmgr -c phb -r -s 'PHB 528'", following
backtrace jumped out because the target device node isn't marked
with OF_DETACHED by of_detach_node(), which caused by error
returned from memory hotplug related reconfig notifier when
disabling CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTREMOVE. The patch fixes it.

ERROR: Bad of_node_put() on /pci@...000020000210/ethernet@0
