[PATCH 0/6 v2] of: Implement iterator for phandles

here is a new version of the implementation of the iterator
over phandles concept which Rob Herring suggested to me some
time ago. My approach is a little bit different from what
the diff showed back then, but it gets rid of the allocation
and 'struct of_phandle_args' misuse.

I also converted the arm-smmu driver to make use of the
iterator. The resulting kernel boots on my AMD Seattle
system and fixes the warning triggered there. The patches
now also pass all dt-unittests in my kvm environment.

Patches are based on v4.6-rc2



Changes since v1:

* Rebased to v4.6-rc2

* Removed the 'if (i == 0)...' hunk from the last patch

* Tested again with DT unit-tests and on the seattle system

Changes since RFC post:

* Reordered members of 'struct of_phandle_iterator' and did
  some renaming

* Removed index counting from the iterator

* Split up iterator implementation into multiple patches

* Fixed the code to survive all dt-unittests, tested with each
  patch in this series

* Re-added and updated some comments which got lost during the

* Added of_for_each_phandle macro for easier handling

* Moved the counting special-case from __of_parse_phandle_with_args
  directly to of_count_phandle_with_args for code

* Removed some iterator helper functions

* Formatting and style changes
