Subject: [PATCH V4] net: dsa: mt7530: Add of_node_put() before break and
 return statements

Every iteration of for_each_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 mt7530.c by inserting of_node_put()
before the break and return statements.

Issue found with Coccinelle.

Signed-off-by: Sumera Priyadarsini <>
Changes in v2:
        Add another of_node_put() in for_each_child_of_node() as
pointed out by Andrew.

Changes in v3:
        - Correct syntax errors
        - Modify commit message

Changes in v4:
	- Change commit prefix to include the driver name,
mt7530, as pointed out by Vladimir.
	- Change the signoff to the correct format.
