Subject[PATCH v2] hv_netvsc: Fix memory leak when removing rndis device
Date
kmemleak detects the following memory leak when hot removing
a network device:

unreferenced object 0xffff888083f63600 (size 256):
comm "kworker/0:1", pid 12, jiffies 4294831717 (age 1113.676s)
hex dump (first 32 bytes):
00 40 c7 33 80 88 ff ff 00 00 00 00 10 00 00 00 .@.3............
00 00 00 00 ad 4e ad de ff ff ff ff 00 00 00 00 .....N..........

rndis_filter_device_add() allocates an instance of struct rndis_device
which never gets deallocated as rndis_filter_device_remove() sets
net_device->extension which points to the rndis_device struct to NULL,
leaving the rndis_device dangling.

Since net_device->extension is eventually freed in free_netvsc_device(),
we refrain from setting it to NULL inside rndis_filter_device_remove()
