From: Srinivas Kandagatla <srinivas.kandagatla@st.com>

This patch introduces of_get_child_by_name function to get a child node
by its name in a given parent node.

Without this patch each driver code has to iterate the parent and do
a string compare, However having of_get_child_by_name libary function would
avoid code duplication, errors and is more convenient.
