Subject: [PATCH v4 05/15] software_node: Enforce parent before child ordering of nodes arrays

Registering software_nodes with the .parent member set to point to a
currently unregistered software_node has the potential for problems,
so enforce parent -> child ordering in arrays passed in to
software_node_register_nodes().

Software nodes that are children of another software node should be
unregistered before their parent. To allow easy unregistering of an array
of software_nodes ordered parent to child, reverse the order in which
software_node_unregister_nodes() unregisters software_nodes.
