Bug is real, but fix is horrible. This already uses gotos for error
handling, so use them....

This fixes it up.

Plus... I do not think these "of_node_put" fixes belong in
stable. They are theoretical bugs; so we hold reference to device tree
structure. a) it is small, b) it stays in memory, anyway. This does
not fix any real problem.
