Subject: [PATCH] of/selftest: Move hash table off stack to fix large frame size

The new testcase that checks phandle consistency was using a hash table
on the stack which made the frame size much large than it should be. Fix
the problem by moving the hash table into the file scope.

Signed-off-by: Grant Likely <>

This patch applies on my devicetree/next branch, which I'm going to ask
Linux to pull later this week.
