Thank you for your comments.
We did some experiments:
+id = of_find_device_by_node@p1(x)
+... when != e = id
...
Or:
...
+ ... when != id = e

The number of issuses found by these two methods is the same.
When != e = id achieves this behavior.

In addition, we feel that we should probably accept this patch first, use it to find more memory leaks, and solve the actual problems in the kernel code.
As for the patch itself, we can continue to pursue perfect in the process of using it to solve practical problems.

Regards,
Wen
