I'm pretty sure it's:

int dlpar_attach_node(struct device_node *dn, struct device_node *parent)
int rc;

dn->parent = parent;

rc = of_attach_node(dn);
if (rc) {
printk(KERN_ERR "Failed to add device node %pOF\n", dn);
return rc;

HERE ^^^^^^^^^^

return 0;

Prior to 215ee763f8cb ("powerpc: pseries: remove dlpar_attach_node
dependency on full path"), we re-looked up the parent, and got another
reference on it. That meant the put before the return there was correct.
But now it's not because the caller has a reference to parent but it's
not ours to drop.

Testing a fix, will report back.
