Subject[ 38/52] n_gsm: memory leak in uplink error path
Date
3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Russ Gorby <russ.gorby@intel.com>

commit 88ed2a60610974443335c924d7cb8e5dcf9dbdc1 upstream.

Uplink (TX) network data will go through gsm_dlci_data_output_framed
there is a bug where if memory allocation fails, the skb which
has already been pulled off the list will be lost.

In addition TX skbs were being processed in LIFO order

Fixed the memory leak, and changed to FIFO order processing
