Subject: [RFC PATCH v3 2/6] of: Make of_find_node_by_path() traverse /aliases for relative paths.

Currently all paths passed to of_find_node_by_path() must begin with a
'/', indicating a full path to the desired node.

Augment the look-up code so that if a path does *not* begin with '/',
the path is used as the name of an /aliases property.  The value of
this alias is then used as the full node path to be found.
