Anton Vorontsov - Dec. 5, 2008, 6:15 p.m.
Given this list (contains three gpio specifiers, one of which is a hole):

gpios = <&phandle1 1 2 3
         0 /* a hole */
         &phandle2 4 5 6>;

of_parse_phandles_with_args() would report -ENOENT for the `hole'
specifier item, the same error value is used to report the end of the
list, for example.

Sometimes we want to differentiate holes from real errors -- for
example when we want to count all the [syntax correct] specifiers.

With this patch of_parse_phandles_with_args() will report -EEXITS when
somebody requested to parse a hole.

Also, make the out_{node,args} arguments optional, when counting we
don't really need the out values.
