Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.4 02/20] mac80211_hwsim: Fix memory leak in
 hwsim_new_radio_nl()

From: Ben Hutchings <ben.hutchings@...ethink.co.uk>

[ Upstream commit 67bd52386125ce1159c0581cbcd2740addf33cd4 ]

hwsim_new_radio_nl() now copies the name attribute in order to add a
null-terminator.  mac80211_hwsim_new_radio() (indirectly) copies it
again into the net_device structure, so the first copy is not used or
freed later.  Free the first copy before returning.

Fixes: ff4dd73dd2b4 ("mac80211_hwsim: check HWSIM_ATTR_RADIO_NAME length")
