Urg, it wouldn't WARN in this case. Sorry, didn't read it correctly

No it doesn't.

So, coming back to the point you made about freeing table on !count,
because there were no nodes present in the DT opp table, we have never
tried to add any OPPs. And so there is no need to call
of_free_opp_table() in that case.

Do you still think the current code is wrong ?
