Subject[PATCH 3.16.y-ckt 108/126] netfilter: nfnetlink: don't probe module if it exists
Date
3.16.7-ckt21 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Florian Westphal <fw@strlen.de>

commit dbc3617f4c1f9fcbe63612048cb9583fea1e11ab upstream.

nfnetlink_bind request_module()s all the time as nfnetlink_get_subsys()
shifts the argument by 8 to obtain the subsys id.

So using type instead of type << 8 always returns NULL.

Fixes: 03292745b02d11 ("netlink: add nlk->netlink_bind hook for module auto-loading")
