Subject: [PATCH 3/5] powerpc/powernv: 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/powernv/opal.c:741:2-8: ERROR: missing of_node_put; acquired a node pointer with refcount incremented on line 733, but without a corresponding object release within this function.
