Subject[PATCH v3] nbd_genl_status: null check for nla_nest_start
Date
nla_nest_start may fail and return NULL. The check is inserted, and
errno is selected based on other call sites within the same source code.
Update: removed extra new line.
v3 Update: added release reply, thanks to Michal Kubecek for pointing
out.
