of: overlay: add missing of_node_get() in __of_attach_node_sysfs
commit 5b2c2f5a0ea3a43e0dee78059e34c7cb54136dcc upstream. There is a matching of_node_put() in __of_detach_node_sysfs() Remove misleading comment from function header comment for of_detach_node(). This patch may result in memory leaks from code that directly calls the dynamic node add and delete functions directly instead of using changesets. This commit should result in powerpc systems that dynamically allocate a node, then later deallocate the node to have a memory leak when the node is deallocated. The next commit will fix the leak.
