Subject[PATCH 5.4 038/109] nl80211: dont return err unconditionally in nl80211_start_ap()
Date
From: Luca Coelho <luciano.coelho@intel.com>

[ Upstream commit bc7a39b4272b9672d806d422b6850e8c1a09914c ]

When a memory leak was fixed, a return err was changed to goto err,
but, accidentally, the if (err) was removed, so now we always exit at
this point.

Fix it by adding if (err) back.
