Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.9 36/52] macvlan: Fix one possible double free
Date
From: Gao Feng <gfree.wind@vip.163.com>

[ Upstream commit d02fd6e7d2933ede6478a15f9e4ce8a93845824e ]

Because the macvlan_uninit would free the macvlan port, so there is one
double free case in macvlan_common_newlink. When the macvlan port is just
created, then register_netdevice or netdev_upper_dev_link failed and they
would invoke macvlan_uninit. Then it would reach the macvlan_port_destroy
which triggers the double free.
