This is a patch I'm not quite happy with. devicetree is such a nice data
structure that it can be useful for other purposes than just a
singular tree for describing the hardware layout.

Maybe we should rename the current implementatiion to
of_find_node_by_path_from() and add a of_find_node_by_path() which calls
this with root_node as first argument?
