Subject: [PATCH net] net: dsa: bcm_sf2: Fix node reference count

of_find_node_by_name() will do an of_node_put() on the "from" argument.
With CONFIG_OF_DYNAMIC enabled which checks for device_node reference
counts, we would be getting a warning like this:

Fix this by adding a of_node_get() to increment the reference count
prior to the call.
