[PATCH 3.19 175/177] cxl: Fix device_node reference counting

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon Mar 16 2015 - 11:20:17 EST

3.19-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Ryan Grimm <grimm@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 6f963ec2d6bf2476a16799eece920acb2100ff1c upstream.

When unbinding and rebinding the driver on a system with a card in PHB0, this
error condition is reached after a few attempts:

ERROR: Bad of_node_put() on /pciex@3fffe40000000

We are missing a call to of_node_get(). pnv_pci_to_phb_node() should
call of_node_get() otherwise np's reference count isn't incremented and
it might go away. Rename pnv_pci_to_phb_node() to pnv_pci_get_phb_node()
so it's clear it calls of_node_get().
