Subject: [PATCH 1/5] powerpc/sparse: fix possible object reference leak

The call to of_find_node_by_path returns a node pointer with refcount
incremented thus it must be explicitly decremented after the last
usage.

Detected by coccinelle with the following warnings:
./arch/powerpc/platforms/pseries/pseries_energy.c:101:1-7: ERROR: missing of_node_put; acquired a node pointer with refcount incremented on line 46, but without a corresponding object release within this function.
./arch/powerpc/platforms/pseries/pseries_energy.c:172:1-7: ERROR: missing of_node_put; acquired a node pointer with refcount incremented on line 111, but without a corresponding object release within this function.
