Subject: [PATCH 1/3] ARM: hisi: fix error handling and missing of_node_put

of_iomap() can return NULL which seems critical here and thus should be
explicitly flagged so that the cause of system halting can be understood.
As of_find_compatible_node() is returning a device node with refcount
incremented it must be explicitly decremented here.

Signed-off-by: Nicholas Mc Guire <>
Fixes: commit 7fda91e73155 ("ARM: hisi: enable smp for HiP01")

Problem located by experimental coccinelle script

Patch was compile tested with: hisi_defconfig (implies CONFIG_SMP=y)

There are two change related checkpatch warnings about
"WARNING: Avoid crashing the kernel - try using WARN_ON"
but here the BUG_ON() seems adequate.

Patch is against 4.18-rc3 (localversion-next is next-20180712)
