Subject: [PATCH] nvmem: core: Fix a resource leak on error in

This doesn't call of_node_put() on the error path so it leads to a
memory leak.

Fixes: 0749aa25af82 ("nvmem: core: fix regression in of_nvmem_cell_get()")
Signed-off-by: Dan Carpenter <>
The kfree_const() could just be replaced with kfree().  Someone got over
excited converting things from kfree() to kfree_const().
