Aha, so this would be the only place where of_get_cpu_node() gets called,
so the parsing would be done only once and then any code that needs CPU DT
node would just simply grab it from CPU dev. Fair enough.
Not sure if this makes the need for such helper to be globally available
in of/base.c, but I guess this won't hurt.
