From: Frank Rowand <frank.rowand@sony.com>

There is a matching of_node_put() in __of_detach_node_sysfs()

Remove misleading comment from function header comment for
of_detach_node().

This patch may result in memory leaks from code that directly calls
the dynamic node add and delete functions directly instead of
using changesets.

Signed-off-by: Frank Rowand <frank.rowand@sony.com>

This patch should result in powerpc systems that dynamically
allocate a node, then later deallocate the node to have a
memory leak when the node is deallocated.

The next patch in the series will fix the leak.
