Subject: [PATCH 5/5] powerpc/8xx: fix possible object reference leak

The call to of_find_compatible_node returns a node pointer with refcount
incremented thus it must be explicitly decremented after the last
usage.
irq_domain_add_linear also calls of_node_get to increase refcount,
so irq_domain will not be affected when it is released.

Detected by coccinelle with the following warnings:
./arch/powerpc/platforms/8xx/pic.c:158:1-7: ERROR: missing of_node_put; acquired a node pointer with refcount incremented on line 136, but without a corresponding object release within this function.
