From: Gavin Shan <gwshan at linux.vnet.ibm.com>

commit f1b3929c232784580e5d8ee324b6bc634e709575 upstream.

While running command "drmgr -c phb -r -s 'PHB 528'", following
backtrace jumped out because the target device node isn't marked
with OF_DETACHED by of_detach_node(), which caused by error
returned from memory hotplug related reconfig notifier when
disabling CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTREMOVE. The patch fixes it.

ERROR: Bad of_node_put() on /pci at 800000020000210/ethernet at 0
