    Gabor Juhos authored
    The missing NULL terminator can cause a panic on
    PPC405 boards during boot:
      Linux/PowerPC load: console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/mtdblock1 rootfstype=squashfs,jffs2 noinitrd init=/etc/preinit
      Finalizing device tree... flat tree at 0x6a5160
      bootconsole [udbg0] enabled
      Page fault in user mode with in_atomic() = 1 mm = (null)
      NIP = c0275f50  MSR = fffffffe
      Oops: Weird page fault, sig: 11 [#1]

      Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill the idle task!
    The panic happens since commit 9597abe0
    (sections: fix section conflicts in arch/powerpc), however the root
    cause of this is that the NULL terminator were not added in commit
    a4f740cf (of/flattree: Add of_flat_dt_match()
    helper function).
