SubjectRe: [RESEND PATCH v1 1/5] of/platform: Speed up of_find_device_by_node()

Adding on a different aspect... The independent replies from three different
maintainers (Rob, Mark, myself) pointed out architectural issues with the
patch series. There were also some implementation issues brought out.
(Although I refrained from bringing up most of my implementation issues
as they are not relevant until architecture issues are resolved.)

When three maintainers say the architecture has issues, you should step
back and think hard. (Not to say maintainers are always correct...)

My suggestion at this point is that you need to go back to the drawing board
and re-think how to address the use case.
