Subject[ 079/109] gianfar: fix potential sk_wmem_alloc imbalance
Date
From: Greg KH <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org>

3.4-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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


From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@google.com>

[ Upstream commit 313b037cf054ec908de92fb4c085403ffd7420d4 ]

commit db83d136d7f753 (gianfar: Fix missing sock reference when
processing TX time stamps) added a potential sk_wmem_alloc imbalance

If the new skb has a different truesize than old one, we can get a
negative sk_wmem_alloc once new skb is orphaned at TX completion.

Now we no longer early orphan skbs in dev_hard_start_xmit(), this
probably can lead to fatal bugs.
