[PATCH v4 07/18] fpga: region: check for child regions before allocing image info




During a device tree overlay pre-apply notification, the check
for child FPGA regions can happen slightly earlier.  This saves
us from allocating the FPGA image info that just gets thrown
away.

This is a baby step in refactoring the FPGA region code to
separate out common FPGA region code from FPGA region
Device Tree overlay support.
