Sure, attached below. I think, though, this patch is already in someone's 
tree. Andrew has applied it to -mm under the name

ppp-dont-leak-an-sk_buff-on-interface-destruction.patch

but then dropped with the reasoning "This patch was dropped because it was 
merged into mainline or a subsystem tree". So, maybe it is now in Samuel's 
IrDA tree. Samuel?So, maybe all you have to do is to pull it from his 
tree.

Thanks
