Subject[PATCH 4.19 88/90] nl80211: fix station_info pertid memory leak
Date
From: Andy Strohman <andrew@andrewstrohman.com>

commit f77bf4863dc2218362f4227d56af4a5f3f08830c upstream.

When dumping stations, memory allocated for station_info's
pertid member will leak if the nl80211 header cannot be added to
the sk_buff due to insufficient tail room.

I noticed this leak in the kmalloc-2048 cache.

Cc: stable@vger.kernel.org
