[ Upstream commit d19af0a76444fde629667ecb823c0ee28f9f67d8 ]

Every open of /proc/net/kcm leaks 16 bytes of memory as is reported by
kmemleak:
unreferenced object 0xffff88059c0e3458 (size 192):
comm "cat", pid 1401, jiffies 4294935742 (age 310.720s)

It is caused by a missing free in the ->release path. So fix it by
providing seq_release_net as the ->release method.
