From: Frank Rowand <frank.rowand@sony.com>

Add checks to (1) overlay apply process and (2) memory freeing
triggered by overlay release.  The checks are intended to detect
possible memory leaks and invalid overlays.

The checks revealed bugs in existing code.  Fixed the bugs.

While fixing bugs, noted other issues, which are fixed in
separate patches.

FPGA folks:

  I made the validation checks that should result in an
  invalid live devicetree report "ERROR" and cause the overlay apply
  to fail.

  I made the memory leak validation tests report "WARNING" and allow
  the overlay apply to complete successfully.  Please let me know
  if you encounter the warnings.  There are at least two paths
  forward to deal with the cases that trigger the warning: (1) change
  the warning to an error and fail the overlay apply, or (2) find a
  way to detect the potential memory leaks and free the memory

ALL people:

  The validations do _not_ address another major concern I have with
  releasing overlays, which is use after free errors.

Changes since v6:
  - 03/18 Add acked-by from Michael Ellerman
  - 03/18 Move info from post "---" into header comment
  - 04/18 Add acked-by from Michael Ellerman
  - 03/18 Move info from post "---" into header comment, add more info
  - 07/18 Drop.

Changes since v5:
  - move from 4.19-rc1 to 4.20-rc1
  - all patches: add tested-by Alan Tull
  - 05/18: update for context change from commit a613b26a50136 ("of:
    Convert to using %pOFn instead of device_node.name")

Changes since v4:
  - 01/18: make error message format consistent, error first, path last
  - 09/18: create of_prop_val_eq() and change open code to use it
  - 09/18: remove extra blank lines

Changes since v3:
  - 01/18: Add expected value of refcount for destroy cset entry error.  Also
    explain the cause of the error.

  - 09/18: for errors of an overlay changing the value of #size-cells or
    #address-cells, return -EINVAL so that overlay apply will fail
  - 09/18: for errors of an overlay changing the value of #size-cells or
    #address-cells, make the message more direct.
    Old message:
      OF: overlay: ERROR: overlay and/or live tree #size-cells invalid in node /soc/base_fpga_region
    New message:
      OF: overlay: ERROR: changing value of /soc/base_fpga_region/#size-cells not allowed

  - 13/18: Update patch comment header to state that this patch modifies the
    previous patch to not return immediately on fragment error and
    explain this is not a performance issue.
  - 13/18: remove redundant "overlay" from two error messages.  "OF: overlay:"
    is already present in pr_fmt()

Changes since v2:

  - 13/18: Use continue to reduce indentation in find_dup_cset_node_entry()
    and find_dup_cset_prop()

Changes since v1:

  - move patch 16/16 to 17/18
  - move patch 15/16 to 18/18
  - new patch 15/18
  - new patch 16/18

  - 05/18: add_changeset_node() header comment: incorrect comment for @target

  - 18/18: add same fix for of_parse_phandle_with_args()
  - 18/18: add same fix for of_parse_phandle_with_args_map()
