Within the same loop is:

                       if (phy_node->parent == priv->dev->of_node->parent) {
                                ret = of_get_phy_mode(mac_np, &interface);
                                if (ret && ret != -ENODEV)
                                        return ret;


shouldn't this also have a put?
