In function st_dwc3_probe, variable child_pdev takes the value returned by of_find_device_by_node, which gets a device pointer but does not put it. If child_pdev is not put before the probe function returns, it may cause a reference leak. Hence put child_pdev after its last usage. Issue found with Coccinelle.
