My requirement is only to get the struct device * for the DT node and I don't
really need to get into the bus specific details at all. I was not sure if there
is a way to lookup for the "struct device" by its DT node currently and so
depended on helpers like of_find_device_by_node(). Can you please point me to
the routine (or the way we can traverse all devices) ?

As I said earlier, I don't really need to work at the bus level. I just need the
device structure and so that may not be required.
