Subject[PATCH 4.3 013/125] ipv6: clean up dev_snmp6 proc entry when we fail to initialize inet6_dev
Date
4.3-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Sabrina Dubroca <sd@queasysnail.net>

[ Upstream commit 2a189f9e57650e9f310ddf4aad75d66c1233a064 ]

In ipv6_add_dev, when addrconf_sysctl_register fails, we do not clean up
the dev_snmp6 entry that we have already registered for this device.
Call snmp6_unregister_dev in this case.

Fixes: a317a2f19da7d ("ipv6: fail early when creating netdev named all or default")
