[PATCH 0/4] Removing full paths from DT full_name

This series is the last steps to remove storing the full path for every 
DT node. Instead, we can create full path strings dynamically as needed 
with printf %pOF specifiers (commit ce4fecf1fe15). There are a number of 
remaining direct users of full_name after this series. I don't believe 
there should be any functional impact for those users with the change to 
only the node name (+unit-address). The majority are for struct 
resource.name. This should only affect /proc/iomem display.

Patches 1 and 2 can be applied now for 4.14. For patches 3 and 4, my 
target is 4.15 after all the dependencies have been merged.

PPC folks, Please test! The PPC parts are untested. A git branch with 
all the dependencies is here[1].
