Subject[PATCH] fix dst_entry leak in icmp_push_reply()
If the ip_append_data() call in icmp_push_reply() fails, 
ip_flush_pending_frames() needs to be called. Otherwise, ip_rt_put() is
never called on inet_sk(icmp_socket->sk)->cork.rt, which prevents the
route (and net_device) from ever being freed.

I've attached a patch which fixes the problem.
