You are already introducing this check in the previous patch when
setting EFI_PARAVIRT, why do this again now? But if we need to do this
check again, then, like Mark suggested, it should be done against the
full path.

This check just wants to confirm that the current node is the "uefi"
node and we can parse it with xen_fdt_params now.

There is no single "uefi" node as many nodes can share that name. There
is at most a single, /hypervisor/uefi node, as that is qualified by a
full path.

Sure, I will check it by full path.

Checking the leaf node name, as above, is insufficient. For example, the
below will be accepted:

* /chosen/uefi
* /foo/uefi
* /not-a-hypervisor/uefi

Any of these could exist in addition to a /hypervisor/uefi node, and
could appear ealier or later in the DTB.

There may be reasons to add such nodes in future, and regardless we
should not read properties from an invalid/wrong node.
