Subject[PATCH 5.0 005/146] genetlink: Fix a memory leak on error path
Date
5.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: YueHaibing <yuehaibing@huawei.com>

[ Upstream commit ceabee6c59943bdd5e1da1a6a20dc7ee5f8113a2 ]

In genl_register_family(), when idr_alloc() fails,
we forget to free the memory we possibly allocate for
family->attrbuf.
