Subject[PATCH net-next 01/12] ethtool: fix reference leak in ethnl_set_privflags()
Date
Andrew noticed that some handlers for *_SET commands leak a netdev
reference if required ethtool_ops callbacks do not exist. One of them is
ethnl_set_privflags(), a simple reproducer would be e.g.

ip link add veth1 type veth peer name veth2
ethtool --set-priv-flags veth1 foo on
ip link del veth1

Make sure dev_put() is called when ethtool_ops check fails.

Fixes: f265d799596a ("ethtool: set device private flags with PRIVFLAGS_SET request")
