Subject: Re: [PATCHv4]Checks for Null value in function *get_skub

Can we close this bug or is it still a issue as we can'
return NULL from kfree or kfree_skb. Here is the bug
ID 44631 I would close it if we are done with the bug
otherwise I think there are no other issues with
allocating a skb,
Cheers Nick
