Your Sob should be last because you sent this patch. The order of Sob
is roughly the order of possession of the patch.

So Sonal and Max modified this patch?

Why does this have Clément's Sob?

For consistency, I think this should be of_changeset_create_node().

A sequence like this would be broken:

np = of_create_node()
of_node_get(np)
of_destroy_node(np)

The put here won't free the node because it still has a ref, but we
just freed the changeset. For this to work correctly, we would need
the release function to handle np->data instead. However, all users of
data aren't a changeset.

I'm failing to remember why we're storing the changeset in 'data', but
there doesn't seem to be a reason now so I think that can just be
dropped. Then if you want to free the node, you'd just do an
of_node_put(). (And maybe after the node is attached you do a put too,
because the attach does a get. Not completely sure.)

A unittest for all these functions would be helpful.
