Subject: [PATCH 4/5] powerpc/embedded6xx: 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

Detected by coccinelle with the following warnings:
./arch/powerpc/platforms/embedded6xx/mvme5100.c:89:2-8: ERROR: missing of_node_put; acquired a node pointer with refcount incremented on line 80, but without a corresponding object release within this function.
