Hi,

If of_parse_phandle() returns non-null, the device_node it returns will
have its reference count increased by one.  That reference needs to be
put.

I assume you're trying to determine whether phylink_of_phy_connect()
failed because of a missing phy-handle rather than of_phy_attach()
failing?  Maybe those two failures ought to be distinguished by errno
return value?

of_phy_attach() may fail due to of_phy_find_device() failing to find
the PHY, or phy_attach_direct() failing.  We could switch from using
of_phy_attach(), to using of_phy_find_device() directly so we can then
propagate phy_attach_direct()'s error code back, rather than losing it.
That would then leave the case of of_phy_find_device() failure to be
considered in terms of errno return value.
