The refcount of a newly added overlay node decrements to one
(instead of zero) when the overlay changeset is destroyed.  This
change will cause the final decrement be to zero.

After applying this patch, new validation warnings will be
reported from the devicetree unittest during boot due to
a pre-existing devicetree bug.  The warnings will be similar to:

  OF: ERROR: memory leak before free overlay changeset,  /testcase-data/overlay-node/test-bus/test-unittest4

This pre-existing devicetree bug will also trigger a WARN_ONCE() from
refcount_sub_and_test_checked() when an overlay changeset is
destroyed without having first been applied.  This scenario occurs
when an error in the overlay is detected during the overlay changeset
