Subject[PATCH 4.16 09/55] net/mlx4_en: Fix an error handling path in mlx4_en_init_netdev()
Date
4.16-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Christophe JAILLET <christophe.jaillet@wanadoo.fr>

[ Upstream commit a577d868b768a3baf16cdd4841ab8cfb165521d6 ]

If an error occurs, 'mlx4_en_destroy_netdev()' is called.
It then calls 'mlx4_en_free_resources()' which does the needed resources
cleanup.

So, doing some explicit kfree in the error handling path would lead to
some double kfree.

Simplify code to avoid such a case.

Fixes: 67f8b1dcb9ee ("net/mlx4_en: Refactor the XDP forwarding rings scheme")
