I see you as an author of 8a0662d9ed29 which adds
device_get_next_child_node() and uses of_get_next_available_child()
instead of of_get_next_child(). Although it was back in 2014, so maybe
it will be tricky to get original intention. :)

Which commit do you mean when you refer to Sakari's work?

We talk about OF backend. In your commit device_get_next_child_node for
OF uses explicitly available node, not any node.
