[PATCH] MIPS: generic: fix missing of_node_put()

 of_find_compatible_node() returns a device_node pointer with refcount
incremented and must be decremented explicitly.  
 As this code is using the result only to check presence of the interrupt 
controller (!NULL) but not actually using the result otherwise the 
refcount can be decremented here immediately again.

Signed-off-by: Nicholas Mc Guire <hofrat@xxxxxxxxx>
Fixes: commit eed0eabd12ef ("MIPS: generic: Introduce generic DT-based board support")

Problem located with an experimental coccinelle script

Patch was compiletested with: 32r1_defconfig (implies generic_defconfig)

Patch is against 4.18-rc4 (localversion-next is next-20180711)
