Subject[PATCH 3.18 28/93] netlink: avoid a double skb free in genlmsg_mcast()
Date
3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Nicolas Dichtel <nicolas.dichtel@6wind.com>


[ Upstream commit 02a2385f37a7c6594c9d89b64c4a1451276f08eb ]

nlmsg_multicast() consumes always the skb, thus the original skb must be
freed only when this function is called with a clone.

Fixes: cb9f7a9a5c96 ("netlink: ensure to loop over all netns in genlmsg_multicast_allns()")
