serial_core.c: add put_device() after device_find_child()

commit 5a65dcc04cda41f4122aacc37a5a348454645399 upstream.

The serial core uses device_find_child() but does not drop the reference to
the retrieved child after using it. This patch add the missing put_device().

What I have done to test this issue.

I used a machine with an AMBA PL011 serial driver. I tested the patch on
next-20120408 because the last branch [next-20120415] does not boot on this
board.

For test purpose, I added some pr_info() messages to print the refcount
after device_find_child() (lines: 1937,2009), and after put_device()
(lines: 1947, 2021).

Boot the machine *without* put_device(). Then:

echo reboot > /sys/power/disk
echo disk > /sys/power/state
[   87.058575] uart_suspend_port:1937 refcount 4
[   87.058582] uart_suspend_port:1947 refcount 4
[   87.098083] uart_resume_port:2009refcount 5
[   87.098088] uart_resume_port:2021 refcount 5

echo disk > /sys/power/state
[  103.055574] uart_suspend_port:1937 refcount 6
[  103.055580] uart_suspend_port:1947 refcount 6
[  103.095322] uart_resume_port:2009 refcount 7
[  103.095327] uart_resume_port:2021 refcount 7

echo disk > /sys/power/state
[  252.459580] uart_suspend_port:1937 refcount 8
[  252.459586] uart_suspend_port:1947 refcount 8
[  252.499611] uart_resume_port:2009 refcount 9
[  252.499616] uart_resume_port:2021 refcount 9

The refcount continuously increased.

Boot the machine *with* this patch. Then:

echo reboot > /sys/power/disk
echo disk > /sys/power/state
[  159.333559] uart_suspend_port:1937 refcount 4
[  159.333566] uart_suspend_port:1947 refcount 3
[  159.372751] uart_resume_port:2009 refcount 4
[  159.372755] uart_resume_port:2021 refcount 3

echo disk > /sys/power/state
[  185.713614] uart_suspend_port:1937 refcount 4
[  185.713621] uart_suspend_port:1947 refcount 3
[  185.752935] uart_resume_port:2009 refcount 4
[  185.752940] uart_resume_port:2021 refcount 3

echo disk > /sys/power/state
[  207.458584] uart_suspend_port:1937 refcount 4
[  207.458591] uart_suspend_port:1947 refcount 3
[  207.498598] uart_resume_port:2009 refcount 4
[  207.498605] uart_resume_port:2021 refcount 3

The refcount correctly handled.
