The channel->of_node will be used in the rcar_gen2_phy_xlate() as drv->channels[i].of_node.
The assignment is not used for any device tree APIs, just comparing the pointer.
So, I don't think this driver needs an of_node_get() on this assignment.
Is my understanding incorrect?

static struct phy *rcar_gen2_phy_xlate(struct device *dev,
				       struct of_phandle_args *args)
{
	struct rcar_gen2_phy_driver *drv;
	struct device_node *np = args->np;
	int i;

	drv = dev_get_drvdata(dev);
	if (!drv)
		return ERR_PTR(-EINVAL);

	for (i = 0; i < drv->num_channels; i++) {
		if (np == drv->channels[i].of_node)	// <--- here only
			break;
	}

	if (i >= drv->num_channels || args->args[0] >= 2)
		return ERR_PTR(-ENODEV);

	return drv->channels[i].phys[args->args[0]].phy;
}
