Actually, some of the of_ functions have validity checking in them.  In 
this case, of_get_property() calls of_find_property() which returns NULL 
if np is 0 which is propagated back up to model so this code should be safe.

In the case of the of_node_put() below, the node is also checked for 
non-NULL so I should be OK there.

Good point, thanks. I'll fix and re-submit.

Thanks for reviewing!
