Subject: [PATCH] bus: arm: Add of_node_put() before break statement

Every iteration of for_each_available_child_of_node() decrements the
reference count of the previous node, however when control is
transferred from the middle of the loop, as in the case of a
return or break or goto, there is no decrement thus ultimately
resulting in a memory leak.

Fix a potential memory leak in arm-cci.c by inserting
of_node_put() before a break statement.

Issue found with Coccinelle.
