Subject[patch 47/59] DECNET: Handle a failure in neigh_parms_alloc (take 2)
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
------------------

From: Eric W. Biederman <ebiederm@xmission.com>

While enhancing the neighbour code to handle multiple network
namespaces I noticed that decnet is assuming neigh_parms_alloc
will allways succeed, which is clearly wrong. So handle the
failure.
